Going medieval

Spending the weekend in Ohio, we attended an excellent performance of Carmina Burana at Blossom last night. It's long been one of my favorite pieces of music, but now having read much of the Latin and German lyrics, along with English translation, while it's being performed, I finally understand some of its themes such as fortune, romantic love, and tavern life. It also made for a nice complement to The Pillars of the Earth, which I'm currently reading.
