Richard Runciman Terry – The Shanty Book Part 1
Richard Runciman Terry – The Shanty Book Part 1 is one of the most recognized shanties collections ever. The first part of this fantastic collection was published in 1921 and was built on a really great experience of an author. It contains thirty shanties along with sheet music for voice and pianoforte. Introduction and descriptions of shanties contain a huge amount of useful knowledge. This book is one of the many published during the so-called “Grand Hall shanty revival”. The content of the descriptions contains a lot of important information; e.g. names of the seaman from whom the individual songs were obtained. This is a must-have for every shanties enthusiast.
