The Phil celebrates spring early

Hastings Philharmonic Choir mounts a spring celebration to rival Jack-in-the-Green on 11 April at St Mary in the Castle.

Chris Cormack examines the kind of people who wrote the poetry that inspired Carl Orff towards his life’s musical masterpiece, the ‘scenic cantata’ that is Carmina Burana.
