G. Wallace Woodworth (1902-1969) is renowned as a choral and orchestral conductor, organist and music educator. At Harvard he studied history and music from 1924-26, and accompanied the Harvard Glee Club. This collection of recordings from his tenure as conductor of the Harvard Glee Club (from 1933) is performed by the HGC with the Radcliffe Choral Society. Included here are 22 Classical works, mostly a cappella pieces performed by both groups, but a handful performed by the groups individually. Favorites are three songs by Claude Debussy, "Dieu! Qu'il la Fait Bon Regarder," "Quant J'ai Ouy le Tabourin" and "Yver, Vous N'estes qu'un Villian;" several tunes by Palestrina, "Benedictus," "Confitemini Domini," "Stabat Mater Dolorosa," "Adoramus Te," "Sanctus and Osanna" and "Benedictus and Osanna." Jacob Regnart's "Petite Nymfe Folatre," Orlandus Lassus' "Mon Coeur se Recommande a Vous" and "Bonjour Mon Couer," Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus" and Leo Preger's "Four Motets" are also some of our favorites. This material is difficult, powerful and not something that your average college glee clubs would consider learning and adding to their repertoire. A remarkable, beautiful collection from a pair of America's best women's and men's choral groups!
