Carmina continues with “Primo Vere.” It is a song of spring, butrepparttar somber tone suggests thatrepparttar 139216 monks are expecting to be smitten by a vengeful God for even thinking about those young women with fresh tan lines. Fortunatelyrepparttar 139217 mood soon brightens, withrepparttar 139218 sonorous baritone of guest vocalist Anton Belov carrying melodiously over a string accompaniment: “. . . andrepparttar 139219 bright fields laugh with flowers.” Byrepparttar 139220 end ofrepparttar 139221 section,repparttar 139222 music is happy torepparttar 139223 point of silliness, andrepparttar 139224 final words are “I’d still prefer instead, to haverepparttar 139225 Queen of England lying in my bed.” Still sound like monks’ poetry? I hoperepparttar 139226 queen was much younger then.

“I amrepparttar 139227 abbott of Cuckoominster!” Belov sings whimsically in a section called “Inrepparttar 139228 Tavern.” However,repparttar 139229 most musically stunning part is a lament sung in very high, tight notes by guest tenor Matthew Garrett, accompanied by flutes suggesting waterfowl: “The lake was my home, and I was beautiful — when I was a swan. Oh, misery! How black I am and thoroughly roasted!” Given that this is a tavern song, thoroughly toasted may be more accurate.

The next section, “The Court of Love,” featuresrepparttar 139230 surprisingly rich voice of guest soprano Suzan Hanson: “There was a girl, who looked like a rose; her face shone, her mouth blossomed. Ah!” There’s a lot of playful back-and-forth between soloists and chorus in this section, andrepparttar 139231 entire work is structured in repeating blocks that give it a wonderful rhythmic quality. An exuberant finale (“abundant Venus!”) deceivesrepparttar 139232 listener, leaving him unprepared forrepparttar 139233 sudden reprise ofrepparttar 139234 nightmarish “Fortuna” section atrepparttar 139235 end: “Lament with me, all of you, for fortune strikes downrepparttar 139236 strong man!”

What a buzzkill.
