Song of the Week 1/25-1/31

When I was a sophomore at Union, a freshly inducted music major, I was able to participate in a great opportunity with the choral program in our department. We, along with the choirs from UT Martin, teamed up with the Jackson Symphony Orchestra to perform Carmina Burana. Now, you may not have ever heard of this multi-movement work. But I guarantee you that you have heard its opening sequence, O Fortuna (click here for a link to the performance I participated in).

This week’s song comes from that awesome work by Carl Orff. I have linked for you my favorite song from this suite called “Ecce gratum.” I hope you enjoy it!
