Thread Name: Tune Req: Sea Fever (Masefield/Andrews)
Subject: RE: BS: Search Challenge - Sea Fever
MMario, no luck at all. If I ever find it, I'll make an entire HTML page of Sea Fever, all the different versions and references. And of course, my original plan was to get Dave the ancient mariner to sing it for us. My only hope now is to contact some of the people who were in school with me, especially chorus, and see if they have any leads. I've even purchased several old chorus boods at clearance sales looking for it. I suspect it was a common arrangement for chorus, and since it's the first tune I heard for Sea Fever, it will always be the prettiest one in my opinion.

Dave, Sandy Paton actually sang that verwsion for me over the phone...quite lovely, but not the one. Since you are in "God's Country" (Indianapolis, right?) maybe you'll run across it. (I lived in "God's Country", Western KY, growing up when I first heard it.)
