One of the most recognizable and often-quoted symphonic passages in modern times is from this grand work for chorus and orchestra by Carl Orff. Combining elements from Movements I and II, Jay Bocook vividly captures the intense spirit of the original in this concise and impressive work for band.

This arrangement of the world hit 'O Fortuna' is meant for youth wind orchestra and amateur ensembles, enabling amateur orchestras to impressively perform Orff's masterpiece. To this end, only common wind instruments, apart from double-bass and percussion, are used and all instruments only use easily playable registers. The scoring of the set of parts follows the usual instrumentation.
