This song was first composed as a single line melody for use in Musical Sculptures workshops at The Hepworth Wakefield, in which families visiting the gallery create music inspired by art works on display. The art work which inspired this one was Christopher Woods' The Fisherman's Farewell. The families sang the song and made up accompaniment patterns and sound effects to fit with the images in the paintings. It has since been arranged by Cheryl for 3-part choir (either TBB or SAA). It is a jovial sea shanty told in three verses from the point of view of the three main characters in the painting: the fisherman, his wife and their son.
By The Hepworth Wakefield for use in family composing workshops at the gallery where it has been performed multiple times, particularly in its single-line form.
community choir; high school choir; single line song is suitable for children
