Tastes of Paradise
Music for Pleasures of the Palate

October 2010

Chicago a cappella serves up a delicious musical menu, including songs about wine, coffee, sweets...and even bagels, mashed potatoes and apple pie. Indulge in treats ranging from J. S. Bach's Coffee Cantata to Rufus Wainwright's "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk."  Other highlights include Paul Carey’s cycle Play With Your Food!, medieval drinking songs, and steamy pop standards "Black Coffee" and "Java Jive."
