This piece was written for my ex-colleague Mary Siew and her band at Shanghai American School, prior to a planned visit there in early 2007.
New Zealand is too young a country to have a true 'folk' tradition and much traditional folk music is really variants of earlier British songs, often with local names and places substituted for the originals. In this piece it deals with the seas and the lives of sailors.
Dedicated to Mary Siew
