The Centennial Whiffs sang at the JE Rededication dinner last night and the first piece was Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square. It's one of the nicest pieces of Fenno arrangements - OK all you advocates of something else........I guess as an old-timer I remember those halcyon days in the '40s. I even remember "Mary won't bill, Mary won't coo, Mary won't dig me what can I do......." At any rate, there are so many songs that we sing that bring back old memories of "happy, golden, bygone days."
Dave Schrieber has CDs of the 1945 Blues, and 1949 Spizzwinks(?) which showcased Fenno arrangements. And, Bill Gard arrangements, too. They were the Golden Years of Yale singing. A renaissance after the Old Yale and The War.
Fenno was a great part of that, and it's wonderful to see those sounds coming back.
Ave atque vale!
We're goin'b '49
Spizzwink(?) '47-'48 what else?
