Background Notes
In many SATB groups the SA voices outnumber the TB voices, sometimes drastically -- especially when several SATB groups combine in a massed choir. "Heave Away," like its companion piece "Sarah," also published by Alliance Music Publications, was written for situations where the upper voices are in abundance. The SA voices extend themselves through simple but rich divisi, while the men have a part with lots of spotlight that still works when the TB voices are in the minority.

"Heave Away" is an old foot-stomper from the Newfoundland docks that can be heard performed both by traditional ensembles and rock bands.

The boat "Jenny Lind" was named for the operatic soprano Johanna Maria Lind (1820-1887), better known as Jenny Lind, the Swedish Nightingale, one of the most famous and beloved celebrities of her day. It has long been the fashion to name all manner of things after celebrities, such as Melba Toast and Peach Melba, both in honour of the Australian soprano Dame Nellie Melba (1861-1931: real name Helen Porter Mitchell -- she chose the stage name "Melba" in tribute to her hometown of Melbourne, Australia). Woody Allen fans may remember the fashion trend in the late 1970s where glasses, shoes, shirts, ties, skirts and jackets were named for the movie character "Annie Hall."
