Put on your sea legs for this exhilarating nautical adventure. Setting out on the waves of the clarinets, the flute calls to the sunrise as the chimes mark the beginning of your voyage. The brass lead the 6/8 sailing song on the Bigler schooner.
Great Lakes Voyage was commissioned to celebrate the memory of Andy Anderson, a charter member of the Bay Concert Band. The charge was to create a piece that would have special meaning for the band, and one that Andy would have enjoyed playing. Great Lakes folk song themes seemed a natural topic. The tunes chosen include: I. Bigler's Crew II. Low Bridge, Everybody Down (commonly known as The Erie Canal, written by Gov. Thomas Allen of NY in 1913) III. Nearer, My God, To Thee (Sarah F. Adams, 1841), The Persia Crew, also known as Lake Huron's Rockbound Shore IV. The Huron Carol (French Canadian Tune), Hoot Owl Song (Chippewa/Objiwa, collected by Gertrude Prokosch Kurath), What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor and Once More A-Lumbering Go (collected by Earl Clifton Beck) Bigler's Crew Come all my boys and listen, a song I'll sing to you. It's all about the Bigler and of her jolly crew. In Milwaukee last October, I chanced to get a sight In the schooner called the 'Bigler' belonging to Detroit. Watch her, catch her, jump up on her juberju, Give her the sheet and let her slide, the boys will push her through. You ought to see us howling, the winds were blowing free, On our passage down to Buffalo from Milwaukee.
