This is truly Satanic art! This is a very powerful and moving song.

For this movement debatable: it's an outcry against the irony of the dispositions of destiny. Satanism, the way I understand, frowns upon blaming one's condition and life-situation on destiny.

However, if you consider the whole ouevre of"Carmina Burana" as conceived by the medieval "Goliards" who embraced self-indulgence, or at least life and liberty, than maybe you can draw some form of correlation.

I personally consider it a piece of art which depicts the life of a certain people, that is the lower class, with a certain admiration, or love.

p.s

André Riu is as satanic as a puppy. Check out this version ;\)

You're absolutely right about Andre Riu, and though O'Fortuna may be about the things you mentioned, It is still a powerful piece because of the chorale and the way it has its roller coaster highs and lows. I honestly did not know O'Fortuna was about loss and despair, but love the song for simple aesthetics.

Thank you for pointing out the finer points.

It's a beautiful piece. I have heard several versions of it, but the orchestra and the cameras going out above the croud really bring this video clip a special affect. Thanks.

What a wonderful piece or art. full of life and emotion. the section at the end of the video with the woman crying show's just how powerful this piece can be. For anyone interested here are the lyrics to the O' Fortuna section


O Fortuna---------------O Fortune,
velut luna--------------like the moon
statu variabilis,-------you are changeable,
semper crescis----------ever waxing
aut decrescis;----------and waning;
vita detestabilis-------hateful life
nunc obdurat------------first oppresses
et tunc curat-----------and then soothes
ludo mentis aciem,------as fancy takes it;
egestatem,--------------poverty
potestatem--------------and power
dissolvit ut glaciem----it melts them like ice.
Sors immanis------------Fate - monstrous
et inanis,--------------and empty,
rota tu volubilis,------you whirling wheel,
status malus,-----------you are malevolent,
vana salus--------------well-being is vain
semper dissolubilis,----and always fades to nothing,
obumbrata---------------shadowed
et velata---------------and veiled
michi quoque niteris----you plague me too;
nunc per ludum----------now through the game
dorsum nudum------------I bring my bare back
fero tui sceleris-------to your villainy.
Sors salutis------------Fate is against me
et virtutis-------------in health
michi nunc contraria----and virtue,
est affectus------------driven on
et defectus-------------and weighted down,
semper in angaria-------always enslaved.
Hac in hora-------------So at this hour
sine mora---------------without delay
corde pulsum tangite----pluck the vibrating strings;
quod per sortem---------since Fate
sternit fortem----------strikes down the strong man,
mecum omnes plangite!---everyone weep with me!

The next time you want to shit in my ear, warn me first.

And I think that if you look at O'F in context of the times and Wagner's role in those times, it will make more sense to you.

Kudos to the OP. I love Wagner and this was a really good rendition of O' Fortuna. You'll have another "view" outta me if you can scrounge up a great video of my personal favorite, "Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral".

Tschüß!
