Songs of Sailor and Sea celebrates man's eternal fascination with the sea and the centuries of seamen who have battled its powerful waves and mysterious depths. Commissioned by the United States Navy Band, this three-movement work depicts shipboard life with a 'Sea Chanty,' creatures of the sea with 'Whale Song,' and finally, the American Clipper Ships with 'Racing the Yankee Clipper.' Expanded percussion richly enhances this dramatically descriptive musical narrative. This is a major contribution to the concert band repertoire! (duration 7:57)
