Bedford Choral Society presents ‘Carmina Burana & Gloria’

Bedford Corn Exchange

Carmina Burana – Carl Orff

Gloria – Francis Poulenc

Conductor Ian Smith with Bedford Sinfonia 

Bedford Youth Chorus directed by Naomi Jones

Soprano – Katherine Crompton

Bass – Edward Grint

Francis Poulenc and Carl Orff showcase their distinctive musical styles in these contrasting 20th century works. Poulenc’s Gloria, based on the traditional Latin text from the Mass, and Orff’s libretto from secular poetry of the 11th to 13th centuries are both rhythmically driven, dramatically scored and emotionally charged. The result will be an exciting combination of chorus, soloists and orchestra.

Tickets £5 to £17

All orders for chargeable events will be subject to a transaction fee of £3.15.
