Overview

Fight songs, alma maters, and other school songs are as numerous and varied as the colleges and universities in the United States to which they belong. Robert F. O'Brien has compiled a long-needed directory of school songs to serve as a reference work for those who must perform, arrange, or research school songs in the course of their day-to-day work.

O'Brien has arranged the songs alphabetically by state, and, within the state, by the name of the institution. Wherever possible, information is provided on the composer, the tune, and the publisher or copyright status. Arrangers are listed whenever possible and lyricist adaptations are also noted. If the song is not an original composition, the original title is shown in the entry. Alphabetical lists of school names, song sources, references, and song publishers are provided. An index of song titles helps to access the wealth of information in this volume. College music teachers, band directors, orchestral conductors, composers, librarians, and alumni will welcome this informative directory.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This unique directory, edited and compiled by the director of Bands Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame, is the first to list school songs from all over the United States. It is arranged alphabetically by state and, within the section for each state, alphabetically by the name of the institution. Entries provide all major songs associated with the school, including the alma mater and fight song. Most entries list the song's composer, the arranger, and the tune. Publisher or copyright status is listed where possible. The schools contacted for inclusion were those listed in Lovejoy's College Guide . This is cross-referenced by school song, and also lists school names, song sources, publishers, and references. The clear, concise format makes it very easy to use. A good choice if you have use for this type of information.-- Barbara S. Meagher, Central Connecticut State Univ., New Britain
