Yampa Valley Singers: Carmina Burana

For the Fall 2008 semester the Yampa Valley Singers tackled a performance of Carl Orff’s classic and amazingly contemporary cantata, Carmina Burana. Written in 1935 using medieval texts, the piece covers topics as familiar in the 13th century as they are in the 21st: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life and the joy of spring.
