The Wind In The Rigging|
The tunes on this CD all have their origins in something to do with the sea. Some are ballads, some chanties, some stories, some hymns. Here they are celebrated for their melodies and performed as instrumentals. Some are haunting in their beauty (for example, Shendoah). You will be suprised at how familier most of these are, which makes for a good listening experience. This CD is also the most consistent seller of all my productions from year to year. Bob Webb the author and historian (who also performs on this) has written a description/explanation of the tunes which will soon be available for download by clicking on the "story behind this CD," below.
