Subject: Sheet music search-Stan Roger`s Northwest Pas
From: Brian
Date: 30 Mar 99 - 09:44 AM

As a member of the Montreal Welsh Male Choir I`m always looking for good tunes to sing. I really like Stan Roger's Northwest Passage and would like to get the sheet music.( if possible with the chorus in four part TTBB harmony) Any assistance welcome.

Dear Brian,

Here are the words (click), don't know about the tune. You might try the "Links", on the main Mudcat page, in the middle of the page, along with other listings. In it, go to the Lester Levy Collection and see if you can find the actual sheet music to it there.

These words were in the DigiTrad database. In the upper rthand corner of this page is a "search" box. I just typed in "northwest passage" and several songs came up, including the one you are looking for. Some have audio. This is a great place to "cruise" for new songs; there are literally thousands in the database. Good luck,

katlaughing

Brian,

Stan Rogers had a song book called "Songs From Fogerty's Cove". I think it may have Northwest Passage in it. It had only vocal line and guitar chords as sheet music, no four part lines.

The song book can be ordered from Elderly.com.

Brian,

Funny you should mention NW Passage I am working on it (solo)

The songbook has the music , Any competent musician in your group should be able to arrange 4 parts.

If you REALLY cant buy the book, (profit goes to Stans family) send a fax number to me ed42@4kz.com.au

Regards Ted

Brian, If you check the Stan Rogers Page at http://www.summerfolk.org/fcm.html you'll find you can order his book, "Songs From Fogarty's Cove". It's money well spent. I paid $25.00 for mine at the Halifax Folklore Centre back in '93. Fogarty's Cove Music has it listed at $18.00. (God Bless the Internet.) Good luck, Dan

The version in the book Rise Up Singing is reasonably close (though the last line is wrong, should be a Bm first and a G at the end). The hard part is getting the tune in the verse right. yours, Peter T.

Up in the North West of England there is a delicacy local to Cumberland in the Lake District - The Cumberland Sausage. Looks like a huge curled up dog turd bust tastes deleicious. I find the ones made in Waberthwaite particularly tasty but enough of my tastes! I was taken with a sudden urge to write a parody, something I have never done before but I could not resist here:-) Could only be done in the right circumstances but feel free if you are so inclined...

Westward from the A6 'tis there 'twas said to lie
The noble food of Cumberland for which my grandad pined;
Seeking golden gravy, leaving fish and chips behind;
And a long-forgotten lonely cairn of plastic trays.

cho: Ah, for just one time I would eat the Northwest sausage
To find the hand of Grandad reaching for the Irish sea;
Tracing one warm line through a land so wild and savage
And eat a Northwest sausage for my tea.

Many years thereafter, I take passage overland
In the footsteps of the old man, where his sea of sauce began
Watching chip shops rise before me. They don't half stink again!
This tardiest escofier, driving hard across the plain.

And through the night, behind the wheel, the mileage clicking west
I think upon Hollands Pies, Yorkshire puddings and the rest
Which cracked the hunger pains and soaked up beer for me
Until I had to stop quick for a pee.

How then am I so different from the first men through this way?
Like them, I ate some settlers, but then threw them all away.
To seek a Northwest sausage is the call of many men
They find them but they throw them up again.

Dunno if Brian is still looking, but there is a good TT(Bar)BB arrangement by Ron Smail here:

http://www.classica.ca/catalogue.php#10

Catalogue #: C 019 EVMSheet Music
Stan Rogers/arr. Ron Smail
    Northwest Passage

       Male Voices TTBarBB a cappella
       (TTBar a cappella)

    One of Stan Rogers' most popular, most enduring melodies, so typical of his style. Ron Smail has done a marvellous arrangement - for two different male choir voicings, all in one octavo! The 'smaller' one one was arranged for the Middle School Male Honour Choir at the Northwest 2008 ACDA Convention in Vancouver, BC. A huge success!
    Price: $ 2.25

We just recently bought the "Songs From Fogarty's Cove " book, and find it very useful ,although we shan't be attempting NWP ! I / we prefer to
leave that to the admirable Tom Lewis & his Polish chums ( CD "Poles Apart " )
       We bought the book for "Fisherman's Wharf" , our version of which is coming along nicely ; beware , though -- the book itself might be cheap, but the airfreight is not ! I think it cost about 70 dollars all told !
