Catulli Carmina (Songs of Catullus) is a cantata by Carl Orff dating from 1940–1943. He described it as ludi scaenici (scenic plays). The work mostly sets poems of the Latin poet Catullus to music, with some text by the composer. Catulli Carmina is part of Trionfi, the musical triptych that also includes the Carmina Burana and Trionfo di Afrodite.

This 1974 Carmina Burana replaces Kegel's more famous recording made in the mid-1960s using the same Leipzig orchestra but different soloists. These three pieces are sonic spectaculars. Carmina Burana, in particular, has been the subject or victim of super-bass, hi-definition, direct-to-disc or quadrophonic ‘specials’ of various stamps.
