Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
ChanteyLass...I must compliment you for your own additions to existing Chanties. With the demise of working ships in sail, there has always been a danger that the Chanty as a genre could end up, consigned to the annals of history. Yes, we have the recordings of Cyril Tawney, Stan Hugill, Bert Lloyd (sp.?) et al, but there's nothing quite like a strongly lead, gutsy Chanty. That you are injecting new blood into this unique vocal form is to be applauded...brava! brava! Care to write a new Chanty for the Rainbow, fitted to a tune we are most likely to know?
