Carl Orff

In 1936, Carl Orff set two-dozen poems from a 13th-century manuscript to music evocative of the Middle Ages. We'll look at his Carmina Burana on this Sunday's program. Then we'll go back to the original manuscripts from the 1200s -- and even earlier --  with some realizations of what this music might actually have sounded like in its time.

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.)
