Other albums of Kamehameha Schools :




  - "This 1997 anniversary album set recognizes "75 years of the Kamehameha Schools Song Contest"... with classical songs, great harmonies, and very rich tradition of school songs, Hawaiian love songs, fight songs, name songs, birthing songs, the full panoply of Hawaiian life in song. It is a harmonious collection of traditional, classical Hawaiian music, one that makes excellent Hawaiian atmosphere for an evening's entertaining. Also, on second and third hearing, it bears more attentive listening too, and gives quite a record of Hawaiian music history in its own right. A very enjoyable collection, this two CDs come in one CD jewel case accompanied by a very informative jacket liner that explains the history of each the songs, the lyrics, the composers, performers, etc. Indirectly, the music traditions of the school tell the story of Hawaii, and richly complete and augment any consideration or study of the history of the Hawaiian people and the Nation/State."
