Notes & Reviews:

Surprise: Anima Eterna tackles Carmina Burana! Often described as ‘music for amateurs’, sometimes used (or misused) towards purely commercial ends, Orff’s Carmina Burana was clearly ready for a new approach, a sort of revivifying, thorough rethinking. This has now been done, thanks to Jos van Immerseel and the absolutely exceptional musical team that he assembled. Faithful to what accounts for the force of his musical approach, Jos van Immerseel profoundly revolutionizes the sound image and interpretation of this score, thanks both to the very high quality of the chosen performers and to the singularity of the instruments and timbres of his orchestra. So it is a very new way of approaching this work that Jos van Immerseel proposes, open-minded, without concession but with the great pleasure and joy of simply making music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Yes, this is Carmina Burana at normal tempos and with pretty good soloists. Well, this is certainly new and unusual. The choir is pretty good.
