Subject: RE: BS: Search Challenge - Sea Fever
Hi Susan-Marie,

Sandy sang the Ed Trickett version to me over the phone...and Sandy has a gorgeous voice! But it wasn't the one. We heard a version on PalTalk the other day, the Simple Pleasures Concert, but it wasn't the one either. Mine is in a major key and has so much variation in the melody, it takes a good singer to hit all the notes. As best I remember, it's a good showcase piece for a tenor. The midi I have is just the melody line of the first part as I remember the tune. If you want it, PM me your email addy so I can send it.

I'm still looking for this version. I think probably a chorus teacher has it somewhere. I heard it in the 60's (I'm 52 now) and have remembered the melody all these years.
