Frobisher Bay arranged by Diane Loomer. For TTBB choir, a cappella. Octavo. Published by Cypress Choral Music (C3.CP1115).
One of the very few folk songs from Canada's frozen North. It's the tale of the captain of a whaling ship who decides to push the late summer season to catch "one more whale," but finds himself and his crew frozen in for the winter. Diane's arrangement captures the mood of sailors who won't see their home and families for another nine months, if at all.
