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). Four well-known, traditional sea shanties comprise this suite, inspiring musical memories of sailing history. Now arranged for woodwind quintet. (Skill level: high school and above)
