Carmina Juventutis (Songs of Youth) was commissioned by the Cornell University Glee Club in celebration of its 125th anniversary. Vinum Bonum (Drinking Song) opens with a majestic flourish a the singers praise"wine, the blessed creature which the pure vine produced." Following this introduction, there is a sudden change of temp to Allegro; at several passages the joyous singers clap. The majestic opening music returns as the singers entreat"the whole world to drink equal draughts, now and forever.".
