GUEST,Phil d'Conch The origin of Sea Chanteys (129* d) RE: The origin of Sea Chanteys 23 Mar 20


Steve:

Me: β€œ...the most popular Protestant music form was for most of the 19th century. ...the so-called "bulgines...” &c.

You: β€œThe later ones adopted after c1830, once chantying took off,...”

Yup, them are those.

As to the others, have you reread the OP lately?

Cyrus Tiffany's (c.1738-1816) maritime musical tradition was Western style martial. The man was born free & Black before the Colonies became American.

In your version, what Gulf Coast West African-American influence and impetus finally kicked the so-called 'proto-shanty' out of its 2200+ year-old proceleusmatic nest?
