On the Quarterdeck CD

On the Quarterdeck is the third in a series of four CDs devoted to music associated with transport. The first, On the Right Track, ref. CTRC, features railway music while the second, On the Right Road, ref. COTR, features cars, buses and pedestrians. The fourth will feature travel by air. Much of this nautical CD is deliberately atmospheric. We begin with Dawn at Sea and end with Sunset at Sea. In between we visit Nelson’s fleet chasing the French; see how to rule the Navy on HMS Pinafore; enjoy jolly jack tars letting their hair down ashore; review the fleet at Spithead; march with military bands; encounter the Royal Yacht; have a knees up in Blackpool; join an old sailor musically reminiscing as he smokes his pipe down by the harbour; hear rare maritime musical interludes and miniatures originally written by the greatest light music composers for post-war music libraries...and there are many other gems you are sure to enjoy. Sit back and wallow in the glow of naval history, military bands, serious songs, comic songs, large boats, small boats, hornpipes and other nautical dances because this is a CD which will run and run — or should that be sail and sail?!
