The Dartmouth Songbook
8.5 x 11
June 8, 2012
The celebration of the 40th anniversary of coeducation at Dartmouth provided an ideal opportunity to issue the seventh edition of The Dartmouth Songbook. This new edition documents in print for the first time the modern four-part arrangements for the richer tonal palette of combined men and women’s voices. Beginning in the late 1970s, the Dartmouth songs underwent sweeping changes with the addition of women’s voices – some purely musical, others focusing on more inclusive lyrics. These songs celebrate the emotional and enduring connection that all members of the Dartmouth family have with one another and to the institution. We offer this latest edition of The Dartmouth Songbook as testimony to Dartmouth’s ability to combine its storied past with its ever-evolving present. We hope that you will treasure these powerfully evocative songs as much as we do.
