Mozart's Attic - Thursday, Jan 22nd at 10:00 pm

Last week's program featured  Carl Orff's settings of verses from the medieval manuscripts known as the Carmina Burana, in which the 20th-century German composer was able to evoke the spirit of the middle ages in a modern work for orchestra, chorus, and soloists. This week we'll go back to the  original tablature of eleventh- through thirteenth-century pieces and some realizations of how this music might have sounded a thousand years ago.

Then we'll take a moment to remember Sonny Marble, WFIT's longtime classical music host who died last month at the age of 92 after what can only be described as a long and full life.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
