Carmina Burana
The text of Carmina Burana, which is taken from 12th century writings of the Goliards, is often dismissed as having no relevance or message other than bawdy songs of drinking and revelry. Upon closer examination, we find that the Goliards were the activists of that day, speaking out against the awesome and omniscient power of the medieval papacy. These scholars were often clerics who did not have the funds to buy their way into the offices of the church and wrote thinly disguised satire against the selling of indulgences, a blatant corruption that was fully vented in Martin Luthers Reformation three centuries later. In addition to performing this enduring choral masterpiece, we sing songs from early medieval times that trace the futility and cultural ignorance of the Crusades and illuminate the eerie 2,000 year-old folly of war.
