Carmina Burana is probably the best known work by Carl Heinrich Maria Orff. Carl Orff was born in Munich in 1895 and died in 1982. This popular cantata which he wrote in 1935 -1936 is written for two soloists, childrens’ choir and chorus. A variety of percussion instruments accentuates the rhythmical excitement of this work. The justly famous opening chorus ‘O Fortuna’ has been used in films and advertising over many years.

Also in the concert is Chilcott’s ‘Little Jazz Mass’ which was well received at a previous concert.

We welcome the superb Jazz Duo, ‘Get Carter’ featuring James Mackie on Hammond organ and John Elles on drums. This is certainly an exciting addition to this season’s programme.
