Could two musical works of the same name be more different?

On the one hand, a complex, densely orchestrated piece of modern, Stravinsky-styled music, with ancient Latin texts ranging from drunken songs to philosophical ruminations—Carmina Burana by 20th Century composer Carl Orff.

On the other, equally spirited texts, but sung with simple voices, accompanied only by ancient instruments—the original Carmina Burana, a vivacious portrayal of Man’s fate and redemption, and wonderful tales of revelry, wine and love, compiled by students and clerks from medieval southern Germany.

The Newburyport Choral Society is thrilled and honored to join forces with Anne Azéma and the Boston Camerata in this unique side-by-side performance of two completely different, yet related musical masterpieces. 

The Greater Newburyport Children’s Chorus will also join their voices with us, as well as vocal soloists, five percussionists and two pianos. You won’t want to miss this dramatic and powerful concert!
