Carmina Burana (カルミナ・ブラーナ Karumina Burāna?), Latin for "Songs from Beuern" (short for Benediktbeuern), is the name given to a manuscript of 254 poems and dramatic texts mostly from the 11th or 12th century, although some are from the 13th century. The pieces were written principally in Medieval Latin. The version that was originally presented in the manga was credited as being the scenic cantata composed by German composer Carl Orff. Most likely for copyright reasons this was altered to be Orff's source material, the medieval version, although the lyrics are identical.
Carmina Burana is presented as the music by which Den's final charge in ES 590 in the Scrapyard is set to and is described as being from a 13th century Benedictine manuscript. Specifically this is the third stanza of the poem "O Fortuna", which is part of Carmina Burana.
