CO N CLUDING REMARKS President Brown BENEDICTION Rabbi Magnin RECESSIONAL . The Brass and Percussion Choir and Organ

Academic Dress The costume of those in the academic procession has a specific symbolism which dates back to at least the 14th century. While there have been many changes in the details, the meaning of the various parts of the costume continues to be the same. Academic institutions in the United States adopted a code of academic dress in 1895 which has been revised from time to time. The dress of institutions in other countries varies considerably, but the basic elements are present in all academic costumes. GOWNS . The bachelor's gown h ilS long, pointed sleevesi the master's gO\-Vll has an oblong sleeve open at the wrists (or some older gowns may be open near the upper part

of the arm); the doctor's gown is fuller than the others with velvet panels full length on the front and three velvet crossbars on each sleeve in black or in the color distinctive of the subject to which the owner's degree pertains. The gowns are always black except for the doctor's, which in a few instances is of a color representing the institution which coruerred the degree. HOODS. The hood, draped over the shoulders and down the back, indicates the subject to which the degree pertains and the university that conferred the degree. The level of the degree is indicated by the size of the hood. The hood for the bachelor's degree is three feet long; for th e master's it is three-and-one-half feet long; and for the doctor's it is four feet long. The binding of the hood is of colored velvet designating the subject of the degree, and it is tvvo inches, three inches, and five inches ,vide for the bachelor's, master's and doctor's degrees respectively. The colors associated with some of the subjects are as follows: Arts, Letters, Humanities, White Commerce, Accountancy, Business, Drab Economics, Copper Education, Light Blue Engineering, Orange Fine Arts, including Archi recture, Broton Law, Purple Medicine, Green

Pharmacy, Olive Green Philosophy, Dark Blue Public Administration, including Foreign Service, Peacock Blue Public Health, Salmon Pink Science, Golden Yellow Theology, Scarlet

The lining of the hood is of the color or colors of the institution conferring the degree. When h I/a colors are used, they are usually arranged in a single chevron. The li~ng of the doctor's hood is revealed more than in the master's, and much less is re-

vealed in the bachelor's hood. CAPS. In the United States, the black mortarboard is most commonly used. The tassel fastened .to the center of the cap is normally worn in the left front quadrant of the cap and is black although it may be of the color appropriate to the subject of the degree. The tassel for a doctor's cap may be of gold thread.


About the lviusic GIOVANNI GABRIEL! (c. 1557-1612) Canzo11 Primi Toni appeared in the Sacrae Symphoniae, a collection of some forty ecclesiastical compositions fOI . voice and/or instruments, published in Venice in 1.597. "Primi Toni refers to the first, or Dorian, church mode; the Italian instrumental canzona was based on the earlier Flemish or French chanson. Written for n'lQ separate choirs [cori spezzati; Gabrieli wrote for as many as five spatially separated vocal or instrumental choirs and organs in St. 1vlark's), Primi Toni offers a glimpse of baroque elaboration and ornamentation in the long trumpet themes. Sonata pian' e forte, also from Sacrae Symphoniae, is an instrmnental Venetian motet for a high and low choir; it illus tra tes the typical modal polyphony-dissonance followed by resolution. Pian' e forte is historically significant: it is the first piece in which the composer specified the ins trumentation--one choir consisting of a cornetto and three trombones, the other a viola and three trombones; it is also the first time dynamics were specified- hence the name. In 1608 Alessandro Raverij published Canzoni per sonare con ogni sorte di stromenti, containing 36 canzonas by a dozen Italian composers . Of the six by Gabriell, La Spiritata is considered the most interesting and innovative of its time. It was probably composed long before the publication date, perhaps in the late 1580's. It is written for four instrumental voices : canto, alto, tenore and basso, and features quickly repeating themes; in this arrangement, the organ is added in the 3/2 section for contrast. N

is composed of members of the Cal tech Wind Ensemble and the Caltech staff, plus members of the San Marino Dads' Band. The Processional features compositions by Melchior Franck, Jeremiall Clarke, Heruy Purcell, Dietrich Buxtehude, Aurelio Bonelli, and Edward Elgar. The Recessional pieces are by Sergei Prokofieff and Louis Lewandowski. THE CALTECH CONVOCATION BRASS Al\TO PERCUSSION CHOIR
