Submitter: Yeah, not much to say about this one. Found it while looking for books on teaching the Orff method to elementary school children. Even if the texts themselves made sense, it’s hard to see this as serving any purpose in a public library. In an academic library… No, sorry, there are more current books about music theory that will cover it better.
Holly: A music school might love to have it, but I’m with you: it has limited use in a public library. It is translations of German and Austrian commentaries – not just a book about Orff or Carmina Burana, which might actually work in some public libraries. In other news, I’m a big fan of Carmina Burana! I’ve seen it performed live several times and it’s always thrilling. #YesReally
