The bawdy medieval verse of Carmina Burana and its famous music were performed Sunday afternoon at Saddleback College's McKinney Theatre.
You may not know the name "Carmina Burana," but once you hear the music, you'll probably recognize this famous classical score.

The lyrics (mostly Latin mixed with German and French) come from jokes passed around by European students around the 11th and 12th centuries. The text was stored for hundreds of years inside a Bavarian monastery and rediscovered in 1803.
The Saddleback College Choir performed the piece. Next they will perform a mixed selection of songs Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. You can find out more, including ticket prices, here.
