A Drop O'Nelson's Blood

Voicing: SAB, or TTBB, and piano

Duration: 2' 53"


A rumbustious setting of a traditional English sea song. "A drop o' Nelson's blood wouldn't do us any harm" - (Nelson's blood is rum). The rollicking piano part gives this song an unstoppable momentum and the interpolated shouts of "Heave" "T'me" remind us that this was a shipboard work song.
