Originating in the monastery of Benediktbeuren, the manuscript of the 'Carmina Burana' contained very little religious music. 'The Great Mystery of the Passion' is one of these rare pieces: a far cry from the ribaldry of most of the others to which the collection owes its popularity. C
omposed during the 13th century, it is an admirable example of the traditional liturgical drama, presenting a staged dramatisation of the characters which prefigure the great Mysteries of the 15th century. A masterpiece of a certain medieval classicism, this Passion was restaged in 1988 by the Atelier Lyrique du Rhin, in collaboration with the Ensemble Organum.
This is a recording of that performance. This title was released for the first time in 1990.
