Cornell’s Alma Mater

j-us-t-me:

Far above Cayuga’s waters, with its waves of blue, 
Stands our noble Alma Mater, glorious to view. 
Lift the chorus, speed it onward, loud her praises tell; 
Hail to thee our Alma Mater! Hail, all hail, Cornell! 

Far above the busy humming of the bustling town,
Reared against the arch of heaven, looks she proudly down.
Lift the chorus, speed it onward, loud her praises tell;
Hail to thee, our alma mater! Hail, all hail, Cornell!

Sentry-like o’er lake and valley towers her regal form,
Watch and ward forever keeping, braving time and storm. 
So through clouds of doubt and darkness gleams her beacon light, 
Fault and error clear revealing, blazing forth the right.

To the glory of her founder rise her stately walls. 
May her sons pay equal tribute whene’er duty calls.
When the moments, swiftly fleeting, ages roll between,
Many yet unborn shall hail her: Alma Mater, Queen! 

In the music of the waters as they glide along, 
In the murmur of the breezees with their whispered song, 
In the tuneful chorus blending with each pealing bell, 
One refrain seems oft repeated: Hail, all hail, Cornell! 

Here, by flood and foaming torrent, gorge and rocky dell, 
Pledge we faith and homage ever to our loved Cornell. 
May time ne’er efface the memory of her natal day, 
And her name and fame be honored far and wide away!

Mozart died while writing a requiem for someone else. Other composers have attempted to complete the work but none could ever truly capture Mozart’s genius. Georg Friedrich Haas has written seven soundscapes that frame the unfinished fragments of the requiem in such a way that the audience can hear the pain, fear, and anxiety of a poor, sick and dying man trying to finish his art before he passes. When performing the mozart the choir and the orchestra perform only those things that were written by mozart himself allowing the sounscapes to occupy the remaining space brining the audience from the beauty and serenity of Mozart’s perfectly balanced tones with the harsh and clear polyrhythms of true human emotion in our darkest hour. 

On April 25th the Cornell University Glee Club and Chorus will performing the profound piece featuring the Argento Chamber Ensemble under the conduction of Michel Galante. If you are a Cornell student or will be in the ithaca area I highly recommend attending this truly unique concert of fine art.
