Lighter, thanks for that transcription. A lot of good work. I was wondering about the idea of "tedium of the repetitiveness". It seems to me that whether or not something like this sounds/feels "tedious" might well be dependent upon the listener. If one were actually working, the tedium might lie with the work rather than the singing. And listening to this kind of music can be actually relaxing in its repetitiveness. Of course this is a strictly subjective sense of things. In the case of the Caribbean kind of chanties - if there is such a category - I certainly don't feel bored, but that may have a lot to do with the harmonies, as you point out. But I wonder about "tedium".
