O, Fortuna

I love this piece of music. It's so powerful and epic. I'm sure you've all heard this song several times but have never know it's name. Well, now you do. ;)

It is the most epic piece of music. It's O Fortuna is from the Camina Burana and it is by Carl Orff, I did know the name. If you look at the english translation, the lyrics are pretty crazy.

I came to this thread thinking it would be about A Confederacy of Dunces. :)

One of the few pieces of music I would consider calling epic. However, it sounds off-key to me in the vidoe :/

There are parts in the song where it sounds as if they are saying that.

Yeah. Opera only works if you can't understand what they're saying because the lyrics are flat out terrible. This is a pretty good piece and I really recommend the entire Opera. Very good stuff.

The whole of Carmina Burana is fantastic. I've seen it performed live twice and it was breathtaking and moving both times. O, fortuna is indeed epic but there are slower, more beautiful peices in there aswell.

Did you know the composition is named after a collection of scrolls they found containing poetry written almost 800 years ago?

Pretty cool reference for a song title I think!

I used to have a CD of Carmina Burana. Carl Orff is the man, and it is awesome.

EDIT: The version above doesn't have a gong! Fail!
