Here are some 60 songs—love songs, drinking songs, hymns to spring, and more—sung by the wandering students of the Middle Ages. Selected by translator John Addington Symonds from a 13th-century manuscript known as the Carmina Burana, the verses include "Welcome to Spring," "The Lover and the Nightingale," "Love Among the Maidens," "Wine and Venus," "Death Takes All," and many others. They appear here with a perceptive introductory essay by Symonds and brief accounts of the extant information on the authors of the verses. 6 black-and-white illus.
