The 60-voice Harvard Glee Club, Harvard's internationally renowned men's chorus, is the oldest college chorus in America, founded by students in 1858 to sing college songs and glees. It took until 1912, under the dynamic direction of Dr. Archibald T. Davison, that the Glee Club developed a repertoire of distinction and gained a national reputation. Drawing its repertoire from six centuries, the Glee Club has proved itself particularly expert in the performance of contemporary American music, sacred repertory of the Renaissance, Eastern European music and Folk songs of the world. Under the direction of Jameson Marvin since 1978, the HGC has enhanced its reputation as one of America premier collegiate choruses. "Long Way From Home" is a rich collection of 27 tunes, many of them, like "The Minstrel Boy," "Danny Boy," "Skye Boat Song," "K'ang Ting Love Song" and "Barb'ra Allen," beautifully arranged by conductor Marvin, and several others, like "The Foggy Dew," "Glorious Apollo" and "Sacramento," arranged by Archibald Davison. Other favorites are Franz Schubert's "Widerspruch" and "La Pastorella, the Georgian Folk song "Voi Di Vo," the traditional song "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child," "Lowlands" (arranged by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw; and several written by Harvard men, Richmond K. Fletcher's "Yo Ho" and "The Grid Iron King & Soldiers Field," R.G. Williams' "Up the Street" and "Harvardiana," Murray Taylor's "Ten Thousand Men of Harvard" and "Fair Harvard," a traditional Irish Air based on a poem by Samuel Gilman, 1811. Every cut here has the wonderful beauty and gravitas we've come to expect and enjoy from this venerable, powerful men's chorus!
