Carmina Burana

Carmina Burana

Carmina Burana is the name given to a manuscript of poems and dramatic texts mostly from the 11th or 12th century, although some are from the 13th century. The pieces are mostly bawdy, irreverent, and satirical. Twenty-four poems in Carmina Burana were set to music by Carl Orff  in 1936, consisting of love songs, songs celebrating the return of spring, and songs connected with drinking and gambling. The Pro Arte Chorale will be joined by Guest Conductor Maestro David Wroe and the NJ Festival Orchestra in the performance of this perennial favorite amongst concert-goers!

Celebration! Love is in the Air

Spring is upon us, and brings to mind songs filled with love, joy and dance!   Elgar wrote The Bavarian Highlands, a cycle of six songs celebrating dance and love, as a remembrance of a holiday he had enjoyed in Upper Bavaria with his wife.  Parry’s I was glad is an introit commonly used in the Anglican church, and was performed at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as well as Prince William’s parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana.  An epithalamium is a poem written specifically for the bride on the way to her marital chamber. Perhaps no poem of this class has been more universally admired than the pastoral Epithalamion of  Edmund Spenser  (1595).  Vaughan Williams’ Epithalamion, consisting of 11 movements, is based on Spenser’s poem. As he often did, Vaughan Williams incorporated the flavor of English folk songs into these songs.
