TTBB: Sea Chanties

From: Noel Ancell
Subject: Shanties for male voices

It is so long since I asked for help finding shanties for male voice
choirs that
I feel rather hesitant about posting the results. But here they are.

Shaw/Parker arrangements, published in the Robert Shaw Choral Series by
Gould :
51052 Swansea Town
51053 What shall we do with the drunken Sailor?
51054 A-Roving
51055 Blow the man down
51057 The drummer and the Cook
51062 Shenandoah

Marshall Bartholomew (&/or Fenno Heath) arrangements, published in the
Yale Glee
Club Series by G. Schirmer :
7211 Shenandoah
7241 Three Shanteys (Eight Bells, Away to Rio, Old Man Noah)
7422 What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
7577 High Barbary (arr. Arthur E. Hall)
7755 Two Chanteys (Mobile Bay, A-roving)

Blow ye winds, arr. David Stocker (Thomas House Publ 1C369407)
The Drunken Sailor, arr. Robert Sund (Walton SK589)

I also understand that Richard Terry published two sets of Shantie
but so far have been unable to locate them.

Thanks to Galen Darrough, Marty Hook, Dennis Nance, Marion Dolan, Michael
Grice, Vernon Sanders, Walter Collins, Steve Kujawa, John Hall and Paul
Sinasohn for their suggestions.

Don't forget Parker/Shaw's Spanish Ladies and Whup Jamboree! These are both fantastic Shanty arrangements. Perfect for an encore.
