Sunday 10th May at 2:30pm
Carmina Burana by Carl Orff


This hugely popular work is a cantata composed in 1935/6 with text from medieval secular poems set into an exciting collection of songs illustrating such things as the fickleness of wealth, the fleeting nature of life, the joy of Spring and the pleasures and perils of drinking and gluttony!

Following its most famous opening chorus “O Fortuna” the work divides into three sections, Springtime, In the Tavern and  The Courts of Love. 

The performance will be accompanied by an army of percussionists alongside two grand pianos.

The programme also includes the reflective Five Mystical Songs for Baritone and Choir by Ralph Vaughan Williams and three songs by contemporary composers Eric Whitaker, Morten Lauridsen and Ola Gjeilo.

The choir will be joined by Christchurch baritone Malcolm Leitch with Michael Bell (organ and piano), Janet Robinson (piano) and a line-up of six percussion players.

The performance is conducted by John Jackets
