Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording showcases one of the finest collegiate male glee clubs in the United States.

2008 will mark the 150th anniversary of the internationally renowned Harvard Glee Club, the oldest college chorus in America. Originally founded by students to sing college songs and glees, it was in 1912, under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Archibald T. Davison, that the Club developed a repertoire of distinction and gained its reputation. Under the direction of Jameson Marvin since 1978, the Harvard Glee Club has only enhanced its reputation, continuing to draw upon six centuries of repertoire, including secular and sacred material. They have demonstrated a particular expertise for American choral music, and this retrospective,
Read more covering more than 20 years of performances, serves as a perfect example of why the Harvard Glee Club has been lauded throughout its history.

-----

"The emphasis is on smooth, lyrical fare that blossoms beautifully under the choir's care...enjoy a distinguished American group staking its claim to the male choral tradition." - American Record Guide
