About 'Gaudeamus Igitur (Graduation March)'
|The Artist:||Traditional Music of unknown author.|
De Brevitate Vitae (Latin: On the Shortness of Life), more commonly known as Gaudeamus Igitur (So Let Us Rejoice) or just Gaudeamus, is a popular academic commercium song in many Western countries, mainly sung or performed at university graduation ceremonies. Despite its use as a formal graduation hymn, it is a jocular, light-hearted composition that pokes fun at university life. The song is thought to originate in a Latin manuscript from 1287. It is in the tradition of carpe diem (seize the day) with its exhortations to enjoy life. It was known as a beer-drinking song in many ancient universities and is the official song of many schools, colleges, universities, institutions, student societies and is the official anthem of the International University Sports Federation.
