This contemporary sea chantey is overflowing with masculinity. The sonorities ring in this tessitura, which captures the best timbre of changed or changing male voices. A robust piano part anchors, but does not double, the voice parts. "To the sea!" Accompaniment included on PianoTrax 1 CD (00-31028).
