The Allentown Symphony preformed one of my favorite musical works, Carmina Burana. It was a combined effort of the Allentown Symphony, Allentown Symphony Chorus and the Bel Canto Children's Chorus of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem. It was a stunning production. Carmina Burana is based on 13th century poems written by the Goliards who were German clergy attacking the defects of the church. They wrote satirical Latin poetry depicting physical love, drinking, gambling and raucous living (of which they freely participated).

Was he a monk? A traveler? A sage? I left him to his solitude and went to the symphony. It was at the performance of Carmina Burana that my muse came.
My man was not a monk or a traveler or a sage. He was a seeker! Yes, my muse was right! I went home and finished .............
