GUEST,Phil d'Conch The Advent and Development of Chanties (888* d) RE: The Advent and Development of Chanties 20 Jan 21

Lighter: Evidently Mudcat doesn't like printing Greek.

Tell me about it. I bet it previewed just fine tho...?

Steve & Lighter: I'm only up to the 1600s. Who knows what the Africans are going to do to take them from the Iron Age and no alphabet or maritime traditions - to the most sophisticated form of nautical song the world has known... all without reference to the Western celeusma and in one hundreth the time. Clev-er fellows.

And, not exactly sure just yet but... celeusma seems to have fallen out of usuage about the same time Western sailors stopped using them, c.19th century... weird huh?
