"Vir-ir-gin-i-a", sometimes called "Vi-ir-gin-i-a," is a University of Virginia school song with lyrics by Virginia Glee Club member and University professor Arthur Kyle Davis, Jr.. Set to a tune by George Frederic Handel, as adapted by John Pepusch for Peter Gay's The Beggar's Opera, by Donald Loach, the tune was premiered to the Jefferson Society in 1968 in honor of the University's sesquicentennial.[1]

The tune has been performed by the Glee Club since, and has been recorded several times, first on A Shadow's on the Sundial, and subsequently on Virginia Glee Club Live! and Songs of Virginia.
