"The Ship That Never Returned" has been set for SATB chorus with piano accompaniment for rehearsal only by C. Jason Bechtold. The text is from Henry Clay Work (1832-1884). The work begins in the key of G major in 6/8 meter. The next section is in 4/4 meter and the key of E minor. Coming back to 6/8 the key changes to F major/D minor. The final section in 4/4 returns to E minor. Ranges for all voices are very moderate and quite approachable. Slow tempo. $1.70 per octavo.

Please order through

I'm portuguese and I saw you have in your list "Music of the seas" interesting material that I'm searching for a concert in May. They are "Dary-eyed Sailor" and "The Lover's Ghost" from Vaughan Williams. They are also others from american composers that I don't know.
Is it possible to send me them by e-mail?
Thanks for your help!
