The DQ of Amherst College

Amherst College Glee Club Recording (1940)

This album by the Glee Club, released in 1940, features the Double Quartet in its earliest recording.

Wherever Amherst men gather, song soon fills the air. Amherst’s songs are many – some strictly about the college, others commonly known to most singing circles but peculiarly endowed with an Amherst twist. And no Amherst man will allow that any ‘foreign’ group can render an Amherst song so capably as the college’s Glee Club, inspired with the love and feeling that comes to those who spend their student days at the fairest college.
