»Three decades of memories came together on Carl Orff’s desk [...]«
During the years 1975-81, Carl Orff compiled the documentation of his musical works and his work for the Schulwerk in an eight-volume publication entitled ›Carl Orff und sein Werk‹.
Carl Orff concludes his work on the documentation of his life works with a text by Franz Werfel:
NUN KEHREN WIR HEIM, NUN KEHREN WIR EIN,
