Anyoe who has not owned this work by Carl Orff, I suggest you obtain one. It`s a masterpeice.

I`d suggest the 1990 version with Ormanday, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Janice Harsanyi.

The Cruel cuts of fate.
I bemoan the wounds of Fortune with weeping eyes, for the gifts she made me she perversely takes away. It is written in truth, that she has a fine head of hair, but, when it comes to seizing an opportunity she is bald.

On Fortune`s throne I used to sit raised up, crowned with the multi-coloured flowers of prosperity; though I may have flourished happy and blessed, now I fall from the peak deprived of glory.

The wheel of Fortune turns; I go down, demeaned; another is raised up; far too high up sits the king at the summit - let him fear ruin! for under the axis is written Queen Hecuba.

Fortune Plango Vulnera-
Fortune plango vulnera stillantibus ocellis quod sua mihi munera subtrahit rebellis. Verum est, quod legitur, fronte capillata, sed plerumque sequitur Occasio calvata.

In Fortune solio sederam elatus, prosperitatis vario flore coronatus; quisquid enim florui felix et beatus, nunc a summo corrui gloria privatus.

Fortune rota volvitur: descendo minoratus; alter in altum tollitur; nimis exaltatus rex sedet in vertice caveat ruinam! nam sub axe legimus Hecubam reginam.

O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable ever waxing and waning; hateful life first oppresses and then soothes, as fancy takes it, poverty and power it melts them like ice.

Fate - monstrous and empty you whirling wheel you are malevolent well-being is vain and always fades to nothing shadowed and veiled you plague me too; now through the game I bring my bare back to your villainy.

Fate is against me in health and virtue driven on and weighted down always enslaved. So at this hour without delay pluck the vibrating strings; since Fate strikes down the string everyone weep with me!

O Fortuna, velut luna statu variabilis semper crescis aut decrescis; vita detestabilis nunc obdurat et tunc curat ludo mentis aciem, egestatem, potestatem dissolvit ut glaciem.

Sors immanis et inanis, rota tu volubilis, status malus, vana salus semper dissolubilis, obumbrata et velata michi quoque niteris; nunc per ludum dorsum nudum fero tui sceleris.

Sors salutis et virtutis michi nunc contraria, est affectus et defectus semper in angaria.Hac in hora sine mora corde pulsum tangite; quod per sortem sternit fortem, mecum omnes plangite!

I have to say that THIS ONE is older and better. And the best bits of this video were taken from it.
