Hey, I never said that Duel of the Fates is a Carmina Burana's rip-off!!! Nor the lyrics are rooted in Carmina Burana. In case you don't know, John Williams took for "Duel of the Fates" lyrics a gaelic poem "Battle of Trees" and then translated it to sanscrit. But those two pieces are similar in style, that is without a doubt.
