Carmina Burana - 'O fortuna' - May 2019

Watching and Listening

The opening music of 'Carmina Burana' is a call to the goddess 'Fortuna'. It is a cantata - a piece of music for voices accompanied by instruments.


We listened to the music and created our own 'call'.

O fortuna - O fortuna
Velut luna - Like the moon
Statu variabilis - You are changeable

Creating a pulse using unpitched percussion

Composing an ostinato
