This is a live, 2-CD set, recorded at a Celebration of the Career of Dr. Jameson Marvin (Director of Choral Activities at Harvard from 1978 to 2010) from April 30, 2010; featuring the Harvard Glee Club, the Radcliffe Choral Society and Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum, all conducted by Dr. Marvin and Associate Conductor Kevin Leong. Disc 1 has 20 songs, some favorites are Palestrina's "Sicut cervus," Thomas Tomkins' "When David Heard," Schubert's "Nachthelle-Opus 134," Randall Thompson's "Stopping by Woods," Pablo Casals' "Nigra sum," Zoltan Kodaly's "Esti dal," Stravinsky's 4-part "Podbliudniye," the American Folk song "He's Gone Away," Conductor Marvin's "Each Future Song," Steven Sametz' "Munus," and Brahms' "Wo ist ein so herrlich Volk." Disc 2 features the World Premier of Robert Kyt's two-part "Song of Awakening;" Part I is "Lament-O Lord Hear My Cry," and Part II is "Psalm-Through God Within." Kyt's work was composed in honor of Dr. Marvin's retirement, and it is followed by remarks by Rev. Peter Gomes and Jack Megan. "A Spring Farewell" is a rich, moving collection by three of America's best collegiate choruses, to honor their great Director, Conductor, teacher and friend as he steps down from his work of molding and making them what they are today!
