One of the most often-quoted classical music pieces in American popular culture, this collection of 24 poems features a full choir, orchestra, and soloist. From the first spine-tingling chord to the last note, this intense piece reminds us of the power of fortune and fate questioning which one is more powerful. Orff's cantata will be preceded by Margaret Bonds’ Credo, a setting of a prose poem by W.E.B. Du Bois. An affirmation of racial justice, peace, and Black pride, the piece matches Du Bois’ reverent words with Bonds’ ingenious orchestration and powerful melodic language.
