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.
