Thread Name: The origin of Sea Chanteys
Subject: RE: The origin of Sea Chanteys
Yes, but what I'm interested in is the development of the particular form - i.e. Call and Response work songs as used on board sailing ships.

We can look at the development of this form here, with some very informed people, so perhaps we may be able to address the question of how and when they developed into what they are.
