GUEST,Phil d'Conch Whalers and chanteys? (8) RE: Whalers and chanteys? 22 Jun 21


Had a quick peek ahead in the notes and there are about ten references to whalers chanting and singing at work. All ten are in the 19th century and are already mentioned in Gibb's The Advent and Development of Chanties thread.

This isn't counting all the Reubens & Ranzos & gones for a whaler &c. Can't say what else might turn up. My reading list is a disaster area.
