O Fortuna - Carmina Burana - Carl Orff - Latin, English - Knights
"O Fortuna" is a medieval Latin Goliardic poem composed early in the thirteenth century, part of the collection known as the Carmina Burana. It is a complaint about fate, and Fortuna, a goddess in Roman mythology and personification of luck. In 1935--36 "O Fortuna" was set to music by the German composer Carl Orff for his twenty-five-movement cantata Carmina Burana. (-- text from Wikipedia.org).
