Richard Runciman Terry – The Shanty Book Part 2

Richard Runciman Terry – The Shanty Book Part 2 is one of the most recognized shanties collections ever. This is the second part; which was published in 1926; to the original first part, after additional five years of the research, Richard Runciman Terry added another thirty-five shanties. Similar to the first part, 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. the names of the seaman from whom the individual songs were obtained. This is a must-have for every shanties enthusiast.
