Watford Philharmonic at Watford Colosseum – A Summer Concert – 27 June 2018 at 7.30pm

 

A summer concert of contrasts! Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana has been described as the most frequently performed choral work of the 21st century. The songs (Carmina) are based on a collection of 13th Century songs and poems written in a mixture of Latin, German and Medieval French celebrating life, love, nature and the joys of the tavern.  Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium has at its heart the Christmas story and is a choral work of ethereal harmonies and great beauty. Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings is a song cycle with settings of six poems by British poets on the subject of night framed by a prologue and epilogue for horn only.
