The program will feature Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, a perennially favorite choral work that sets anonymous medieval poetry (mostly about gambling, drinking and decidedly un-chivalric romantic activity) to dynamic and propulsive 20th-century music. The program also will feature a cappella works by William Byrd, Thomas Morley and Arlo McKinnon.
