    Was definitely not expecting that.

    That was my first reaction, although more intense as I just happened upon this work, enjoyed the first movement, then all of a sudden - I am in the 20th / 21st? century?

    The caption at the beginning of the second movement reads (in Latin)

    hic dissonat ubique nam ebrii sic diversis cantilensis clamare solent
    Google translate says it means:

    This contradicts everywhere cry out for drunk so different
    Makes sense.
