Please... call the police for the next flash mob. I am tired of contrived "orchestras" and "choirs" suddenly appearing in malls opening their mouths to lip sync music in perfect balance in a cavernous mall. Only idiots, non-musicians, people looking for the next American Idiot, and people who think anything on God tube must be Christian so I will like a piece about cruel fate because they have no freaking idea what Carmina Burana is about but it showed up in their in box and they do not want to admit they do not know what the piece means or they are easily entertained because "look, people come out of nowhere to sing and play, George! They are good George, we must clap and forward to our other friends." Sorry, to offend, but please pick up a book... Steinbeck if you do not get the reference and tell your friends, please stop it. Before even the idiots realize people who love classical music are idiots because we liked other idiots being idiots with out realizing we were saying more about ourselves being idiots than we realized because we saw it posted somewhere.

The music was great but they needed a better photographer as it was too choppy and I felt I missed a lot.

When it starts to stutter you are watching it faster that it can download -- take your mouse and pull the bar back to the left a minute or so(few inches) on the lower bar so the download can keep ahead of the viewing.

Just watched a clip on Youtube on the famous horse Seabiscuit and for the middle part they used Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. Probably many more uses and traction for this work.

As much as I love this piece and have sung it before, it surprised me to find it in GodTube, listed as "inspirational" since the lyrics and the intention of the writer was to curse God. These lyrics were find in the prison cell where he died, an ex-monk, who wrote his last curses on the wall of his cell. Look up the translation and you'll see. I liked the performance. Well done. But inspirational? Not so much.

Why is this posted on "Godtube"? This piece has more to do with Nationalism and Fascism than Christianity. There's nothing in this video that implies that any of the performers are Christian and are performing this worshipfully (except the Christian Singles ad). If any of them are, than that is terrific, but I don't think it should be assumed. (by the way, I play percussion, I'm Christian, I love this piece, and that was an amazing performance).

Beautiful Carmina Burana! I've never seen it performed this way.

It's a good performance alright. But... it's cantata, not opera. And I wonder how many are aware that the Goddess being sung about is Roman mythology. Of course, if you go with CS Lewis theology, honestly given praise to the "wrong" God is accepted by the "right" one, but such a liberal interpretation isn't often terribly well received by a lot of folks... Thou shalt have no other gods and the like...

This bothers me. Who cleans up afterwards?
