Participation in the May Festi-
val will again be a high point in
the year's activities for over 300
members of Choral Union.
The collaboration of four local
churches for a performance of
Handel's "Messiah" was the spark
that ignited the idea that even-
tually grew into the organization
that is now called Choral Union.
Now it is recognized as one of the
oldest permanent choral groups
existing in the country.
Since the May Festival's origin
in 1894, the Choral Union has sung
at two or three concerts every sea-
Varied Selections Presented
Traditionally one of their pro-
grams has featured older classical
works while the other features
modern, contemporary selections.
This season "Carmina Burana"
and Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis
in D major" will be performed by
the Choral Union, featured solo-
ists and the Philadelphia Orches-
tra under the baton of Thor
A twelfth century Benedictine
monastery formed the scene of
the origin of "Carmina Burana."
The monastery, a great center of
art and culture and the gathering
place of vagabond poets, produced
much bad, mediocre and great po-
Musician rinds Poetry
About 100 years ago the discov-
ery of this material was made. Carl
Orff, a German musician, picked
out the best of these works and set
them to music.
Since the arrival of "Carmina
Burana" in America, it has caused
a great deal of interest in musical
circles. Thor Johnson has previ-
ously performed the work and en-
thusiastically decided that he
would like to do this selection
with the Choral Union for the May
The "Missa Solemnis" is often
considered the: greatest choral
work in existence. The selection of
this number follows the Choral
Union tradition since they have
performed all of the great orator-
ios, many of the operas adapted
for choral use and a variety of oth-
er noted works during their 75
year existence.
Besides participating in the May
Festival, the Choral Union also
presents Handel's "Messiah" ev-
ery December.
Over 20,000 persons have sung
in Choral Union since its estab-
lishment in 1879. Many of the
