Subject: Carmina Yalensi (1867) Songbook Download
From: John M.
Date: 10 Dec 05 - 06:04 PM

Hello everyone,

Here is the Yale songbook titled Carmina Yalensi (1867) (21MB). This college songbook has, reportedly, the earliest instance of the song "The Rambling Wreck of Georgia Tech" aka "Son of a Gambolier".

Does anyone out there have any other of the Carmina college songbooks? I am espcially looking for early copies of Carmina Princtonia and Carmina Collegensia. If you have copies of these songbooks, please email me at john@mehlberg.com

Your help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

John Mehlberg

Sent some notes and email to John.
The song did not appear in Carmina Yalensia until 1873.

I downloaded the songbook- many, many thanks.

"Son of a Gambolier" not in C. Wistar Stevens, 1860, "College Song Book, A Collection of American College Songs," Russell & Tolman, Boston.

Thanks a lot, John.

My copy of Carmina Princetonia is a later one: 21st ed. (1927).

Thanks, John. There are some interesting tunes in it nevertheless. "Derby Ram" is on p. 41, and "The Wearing of the Green"
(under the West Point title of "Benny Havens O!") features prominently.

The most interesting to me is the tune of "Shule Aroon," used for several antebellum Yale parodies.

"Son of a Gambolier" in "Carmina Princetonia," 1894, posted in thread 76708; other versions in the same thread.
Son of a Gambolier

"Derby Ram" was used in a "Song" introduced by the Yale Class of 1854, text in "College Song Book," 1860, Ed. C. Wistar Stevens, p. 60.

"Shool," called an American Student Song;" Yale version, p. 40 of the same 1860 song book. (I wish I was in Boston City, Where all the girls they are so pretty, ...)

I have a copy of Carmina Princetonia, 1914 edition. The binding is loose, but all pages seem to be present. I realize your request was posted a few years ago, but I just found it when I did a search for the book.

Is there a current location for the Web pages of immortalia.com?

They had moved to drinkingsongs.com, but they're not there any more. There was a mirror at Fresno State University, but that's gone, too.

John sent me a DVD with the Website years ago, but then I didn't use it because it was online. Hope I can find that DVD.

I did find a Website that is very similar, http://www.horntip.com/index.htm. I don't know if it's built on the immortalia Website, but it might be. Doesn't have the Yale songbook, though.
