Sometimes I feel like a moanin' dove

Or, as Fenno arranged it, "like a motherless child." Thanks to you, Fenno,I was fortunate enough to get to sing both -- and so much more.

My freshman year of college, when I went home to Princeton for Thanksgiving,I ran into a rather pompous professor who asked what I was majoring in."What a stupid question to ask a first semester freshman," I thought. Ilooked him straight in the eye and answered, "Glee Club."

I continued to major in Glee Club throughout my college career. My fondestmemories of Yale will always be of the many happy hours spent with the GleeClub -- on tour, in concert, in rehearsal -- and the camaraderie in singingwe all enjoyed, thanks to the wonderful spirit that flowed from Fenno,always aided and abetted by Carol.

"Louder yet the chorus raise, friendship lasts when youth must fail" --especially lasting are the friendships formed in Hendrie Hall. By the1970's, there may not have been many elms to be 'neath, but we were always'neath the strong, gesticulating, insistent, sheltering, upraised arms of Fenno Heath, leading us to raise our voices with the shared love of musicand song.
Thank you.
