The sea depicted in 'Poems of the Sea' from which this 'Chanty' was taken are neither as dramatically stormy as in 'The Flying Dutchman' nor as reflective as Debussy's in 'La Mer'. Instead, they are gentle without being placid and energetic without being turbulent. 'Chanty' itself is far removed form the kind of sea shanty exemplified by 'What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor' - this is a reflective piece with a touching melody. It is here arranged for Brass Sextet by R.W. Landes.
