It is definitely an intense piece of music. In college I took part in a Wyoming State Choir, and we did several pieces from Carmina Burana - some of the translations of the pieces were not quite polite..

Love the second link! HAHA~~

I love Carmina Burana! My husband played a wind ensemble version in college. Great memories!
