In taberna quando sumus (3:15)

Cover of Carmina Burana (Chicago Symphony Orchestra feat. conductor: James Levine)

From Carmina Burana (Chicago Symphony Orchestra feat. conductor: James Levine) and 15 other releases

A drinking song. In the third and fourth stanzas the Latin frequentative adverbs are translated with their classical meaning, three times (ter), four times (quater), etc. It is possible, however, that they are used as ordinal adverbs, i.e. ter means thirdly, in the third place, etc. Why a toast involving bis twice is missing is not obvious — there may be textual corruption.
