Product Description

Sea Chantey Composed by Doug Spata. For String Orchestra. Published by Highland/Etling. (Catalog # 20784, UPC: 038081207131)

Sea Chantey is an original concert rondo in the style of a robust eighteenth c entury British sailor song. Boisterous melodies are passed between sections in a call-and-response style throughout this brisk and lighthearted piece. Best of all, Sea Chantey is designed as an etude for 6/8 time and features all of t he most common rhythms and bowings of that meter in each part. Orchestra teach ers will appreciate this piece as an excellent introduction to complex meters while students will enjoy the lively and robust style.
