Willis Patterson's last concert
with the Michigan Men's Glee
Club. In presenting ansimpres-
sive program, the sixty-five
voice choir exhibited a wide.
range in both their repertoire
The highlight of the perform-
ance was a series of short pieces
sung and danced by the Friars.
The eight voice group clowned
their way through a couple of
pieces with the aid of top hats,
canes, and a rubber chicken. Al-
though their singing was some-
times lost in vast Hill Auditor-
ium, their antics and the blend
of their voices-combined for an-'
other quality performance.
In contrast to the boisterous
antics of the Friars, the Club
sang a number of religious and
The concert opened with
three pieces in Latin. Mozart's
'Adoramus Te, Christe' andl
Scheutky - McKinney's 'Emitte"
Spiritum Tuum' were well
sung. Laudes Atque Carmina, by
A. Stanley of the class of '91, is
dear to the hearts of honors con-r

Z. Kodajy, contained some fine
contrapuntal sections, makingI

Three Villanellas and an Alto
Rhapsody closed the first half
of the program. Although well
executed they did not evoke the
same excitement that the open-
ing numbers did. Nevertheless,
Club member Rodney Brown,
Associate Professor Rosemary
Russell, and organist Herman
Taylor performed well.
The second half of the pro-
gram was a mixture of spirit-1
uals, antics, and Michigan
songs. Old King Cole, arranged
by Okun, was a rollicking spoof
of the army. The club presented
it in excellent form, with a de-
liberately off - balance accom-
paniment by Chad Furman and

voted to folk music and Black
Spirituals. Charles Brown sang
an especially rich and powerful
solo. S. Carver Davenport, Ri-
chard Fracker, and Randy Lam-;
bert each sang a tenor solo as

Records in review
F ANYONE saw the London Symphony under Andre Previn
at Hill auditorium last September, they will love this re-
cording. Previn again demonstrates the virtuosity of this beauti-
ful orchestra., This recording does not stress the large group
sound but more of the individual and ensemble playing that the
LSO does so well.
The music on the album contrasts very nicely. The Shostako-
vich symphony provides the heavy serious playing, while Proko-
fiev Kije Suite is the more melodic side. Both are brought to
life here with a concentrated intensity. Previn seems to favor
these two composers and he conducts their works with. gusto.
However, the album does present a problem. This is over 57
minutes of music. Most of it is the Shostakovich piece. Although
there is plenty of wonderful playing, it requires no small effort
on the part of the listener. This can become very difficult in our
world of studying and constant commotion. But for sheer music-
ianship, this record can't be beat.

CARL ORFF's Carmina Burana, a 20th-century setting of
Medieval secular poetry, has just been recorded by Michael
Tilson Thomas and the Cleveland Orchestra (Columbia MX
33172). This music, which is derivative of Stravinsky (specifically
Les Noces) although written by a man with nowhere nearI
Stravinsky's talent or imagination, is a pleasant enough piece
which doesn't bear too many repeated listenings or too much
I wouldn't have thought it possible to ruin such an innocuous
piece, but Tilson Thomas manages. He has always been a talent-
ed musician, and is still an especially good pianist, but his
conducting has been getting more erratic with every record.
This performance is incredibly willful and distorted - every
fast section is so fast that you can't hear anything and the beat
gets lost, for the orchestra and singers as well as the listener.j
IT'S BEEN A long wait for their fans, but Led Zeppelin finally
came through for the faithful. Physical Graffiti (Swan Song
SS 2-200) is a double record set, and it offers a bit of everything
Jimmy Page and his cohorts do: blues, rock, acoustics, and
things in between.
The highlights on the album are the acoustic guitar pieces that
are reminiscent of the better cuts on Zeppelin's third album. In
addition, John Paul Jones, featured bassist and keyboard player,
offers interesting work both instrumentally (synthesizers) and
compositionally ("Night Flight", "Kashmir").
