Completely unexpected beauty

Flashmob does opening to Carmina Burana at Vienna train station

I was completely overjoyed while watching this video. As some of the most popular music in the western classical cannon, Carmina Burana has been immortalized in countless films and is immediately recognizable to many. The opening and closing  ”O Fortuna” played in this video is so beautiful and powerful, the words so tragically describing the human condition, I usually hear it on the edge of my seat and with a tear in my eye. If I had been in Wien Westbanhof at the moment of this flash mob, I would have gladly missed my train.
