Songs of the Sailor Songbook
Mystic Seaport's interpretation programs include a strong sea-music component. This book of chanteys, spiral-bound to open flat for music stand or other placement, consists of 25 classic sea songs and some of their variants, accompanied by musical notations made by Marc Bernier and explanatory notes from Glenn Grasso. The notes cover the history of these songs, and explain how they are used at Mystic Seaport to accompany shipwork done by the Museum's Demonstration Squad. This attractive book is a perfect introduction to the chanteys deepwater sailormen sang as they did their work.
