The Shanties And Ballads Of The High Seas
de Gerry Smyth; Ilustração: Jonny Hannah
Sobre o livro
Passed down in the oral tradition and sung traditionally as working songs, sea shanties tell the human stories of life at sea: hard graft, battling the elements, the loss of ships or pining for a lady on shore. Acclaimed shanty devotee Gerry Smyth presents the background to each shanty alongside musical notation.
