Sailor's Lament

Composer Susan Day

This clever sea chantey by Susan Day gives young students experience with pizzicato and tremolo.

A firm beat supports the melodic themes. All parts stay in first position. Musical images include a ship tossed by high winds, crashing waves, and busy sailors. A short violin solo at the end represents the plaintive lament of one very homesick sailor.

A sure-fire winner for young string orchestras!
