INSPIRED BY THE GRANDEUR OF THE SEA

American composer Frank Ticheli’s The Shore weaves a commanding score set to David St. John’s poetry in which the sea is a metaphor for life’s journey. The poetry provides a rich palette of musical moods evoked by the sea.

In Songs of the Fleet, Charles Villiers Stanford deploys his harmonic inventiveness and folk-like melodies to depict the fleet ‘waking’ at sunrise, ready to set sail, and motionless at dusk.
