Shanties are the work songs that were used on the square-rigged ships during the "Age of Sail." Their rhythms coordinated the efforts of many sailors hailing on the lines (ropes). This is one movement from a suite of four well-known, traditional sea shanties, a choice if only a single movement is desired. See Abernathy – Sea Shanties for the complete suite at a discounted price. (Skill level: high school and above)
