Not all nautical songs are sea chanteys. There are muscular chanteys here (songs sailors used to work in rhythm hauling lines, hoisting sails, lifting anchor, or simply swabbing the decks), but also the lonely ballads sailors shared off-duty, and the everyday songs sung on shore by women and families creating a vivid, transporting portrait of maritime culture. The Revels Chorus is joined by British traditional singers David Jones, Louis Killen, John Roberts and Tony Barrand.
