Found inGrove music online, Jan. 7, 2011 (Carmina Burana; "title given by Johann Andreas Schmeller to his complete edition (1847) of the poems in an early 13th-century German manuscript (now D-Mbs Clm 4660) that had come in 1803 from the Benedictine abbey of Benediktbeuern .... [I]t is now generally agreed that it probably did not originate in Benediktbeuren and may have come from Seckau in Carinthia or the Tyrol"; several poems include music notation but "melodies must, for the most part, be reconstructed from concordances in the St Martial and Notre Dame repertories")
