Passed down in the oral tradition and sung traditionally as working songs, sea shanties tell the human stories of life at sea: hard graft, battling the elements, the loss of ships or pining for a lady on shore. Shanty devotee Gerry Smyth presents the backgrounds of 40 songs from the age of sail with musical notation.
