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.
