O Fortuna & Fortune plango vulnera

The first two tracks from Carl Orff‘s Carmina Burana. I think this video is taken from a 1975 production (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298787/), made into DVD in 2002.

Lots of Tarot symbolism here; the Wheel naturally most obvious together with Fortuna, but many other cards “in the flesh” too. Or, more correctly put, classical allegories which were then transformed into triumphal parades, and then found their way into Tarocchi.
