Liner Notes[edit]

In 1983 Ray Manzarek, long attracted to the spiritual power of CARMINA BURANA, chose to interpret the piece in a contemporary framework. This presentation intends to create enchanted pictures; to conjure up the ecstasy expressed by the lyrics, an enhanced intense feeling for life akin to the passions and revelry of the wandering poets of so long ago.
