A suite of three traditional sea shanties for string orchestra, composed for the string musicians of Rockport High School, Rockport, Massachusetts, and their director, Nathan Cohen.  O Shennandoah is included because it is a maritime song, sung by mariners who were plying the waters of great rivers of the plains.  This recording is a computer realization.

A video of the premiere of Mrs. McGrath can be seen/heard at:
