"Fortune meant well with me when she guided a catalogue of an antiquarian bookshop in Würzburg into my hands wherein I discovered a title which drew me in with its magic powers: Carmina Burana." This is how Carl Orff described the discovery of the manuscript from Benediktbeuren which was to become the basis for his most well-known work

"Jochum's 1968 recording of Carmina Burana has never sounded better than it does in this reissue in DG's 'Originals' series. The recording has a wide dynamic range and when the music blazes it has real spedour and excitement. Fischer-Dieskau's singing is refined but not too much so. The soprano, Gundula Janowitz, finds quite dignity for her contribution and this is finely done." (Penguin Stereo Guide)
