♪Carl Orff – Carmina Burana – 03. Veris Leta Facies

I. PRIMO VERE 3. VERIS LETA FACIES

Veris leta facies mundo propinatur, hiemalis acies victa iam fugatur, in vestitu vario Flora principatur, nemorum dulcisono que cantu celebratur.

Flore fusus gremio Phebus novo more risum dat, hac vario iam stipate flore. Zephyrus nectareo spirans in odore. Certatim pro bravio curramus in amore. Ah!

Cytharizat cantico dulcis Philomena, flore rident vario prata iam serena, salit cetus avium silve per amena, promit virgin iam gaudia millena Ah!

I. SPRING 3. THE MERRY FACE OF SPRING

The merry face of spring turns to the world, sharp winter now flees, vanquished; bedecked in various colors Flora reigns, the harmony of the woods praises her in song. Ah!

Lying in Flora’s lap Phoebus once more smiles, now covered in multi-coloured flowers, Zephyr breathes nectar- scented breezes. Let us rush to compete for love’s prize. Ah!

In harp-like tones sings the sweet nightingale, with many flowers the joyous meadows are laughing, a flock of birds rises up through the pleasant forests, the chorus of maidens already promises a thousand joys. Ah!
