Rhythm is the driving force behind Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. Whether loud and bombastic or sorrowful and gut-wrenching, this work is intensely dramatic. The musical setting of twenty-five poems is sung in medieval Latin and German. Conducted by choral master Robert Shaw, an excerpt of this powerful performance was chosen for the soundtrack of the movie, "The Doors".
