Carl Orff: Carmina Burana - Vocal Score

Books | Soprano, Tenor, Baritone, SATB

Publisher: Schott Music
Composer: Carl Orff
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Arranged for three soloists; Soprano, Tenor and Baritone as well as the chorus SATB. Carl Orff’s dramatic cantata, Carmina Burana was originally designed as a theatre piece, a "scenic cantata" to be danced as well as sung and played. Already 38 when he began composing Carmina Burana — Songs from Benediktbeuern — Orff was nearly 42 when it finally was produced in 1936. Carmina Burana reflects the period when Orff finally turned his back on chromaticism and complex polyphony for a deliberately simplified style, characterised by its rhythmic energy and the repetition of short melodic phrases supported by elemental block harmonies. In Latin and High German.

          Very clear print: an improvement on the older Schott edition.

          Very clear layout. Glad it had piano reduction below the satb.

          Wer Die Carmina Burana singen will, kommt an SCHOTT nicht vorbei. Der Klavierauszug hat den Vorteil, gegenüber dem Chorauszug, dass man auch instrumentale Passagen verfolgen kann.

          Well laid out score, much easier to read than the earlier version which is what I started rehearsing with. A real improvement, thanks.
