“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.
