The U-M Men's Glee Club

 

continued

Listening recently to Echoes from the Cliffs, a Glee Club CD recorded on a spring 2004 tour of the British Isles, I single out Victoria's sublime "O Vos Omnes," the exquisite spiritual "Sometimes I Feel like a Motherless Child," the witty "What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor?" and my favorite, "Danny Boy," as songs that freshened my memory of this chorus's amazing variety of repertoire and musical virtuosity.

The club has a new conductor, Paul Rardin, and in November he had his men dancing through some of the livelier numbers. I can't wait to see what Rardin has planned for the club's upcoming spring concert at Hill on Saturday, April 8. A final aside to fans of U-M football: you've never really heard "The Victors" until you've listened to the Men's Glee Club sing it in Hill Auditorium.
