Drinking, gambling, gluttony, lust, the fleeting nature of fortune and wealth, the joy of Springtime, love; Carmina Burana has it all. Carl Orff set to music twenty-four texts from the medieval manuscript of courtly poetry and dramatic writings collectively known as Carmina Burana – and what astonishing music it is! Juxtaposed against the liturgical beauty of biblical psalms in their original Hebrew set to music by Leonard Bernstein, this extraordinary concert explores the sacred and the profane.
