Cornell Alma Mater and Chimes

Familiar to all Cornellians, the Alma Mater and "The Cornell Changes" can be heard ringing throughout campus every day of the year, the Alma Mater being played at each midday chimes concert, the "Changes" at the start of each morning concert.

The recording of the Alma Mater provided here is the vocal a capella version performed by the Cornell University Glee Club, recognized as one of the premiere collegiate ensembles in the United States.

The version of the "The Cornell Changes" found here is from a 1998 recording by the Cornell Chimesmasters, compiled just before the tower and bells underwent major renovations.
