From: GUEST,Mg
Date: 18 Oct 16 - 04:01 AM

I think I will do a cod CD similar to salmon CD set..but this will only have one. Songs from all over...would love Portuguese, basque, French can ada, Norway, Lapland etc. I will be lax about definition of cod. I prob have more than i Need from nf. Not looking for cod liver oil songs. Will beworking with one or two NFS.

Not too many fish all gone songs, hope to have people from all over sing let me fish off cape st.Marys...

There may or may not be room on CD for people to contribute songs....it is going to be tight.

Stan Roger's The Jeanie C deals with fishing for cod, though that is not the theme of the song. At least they are mentioned.

"The Lone Fish Ball" (aka "One Meatball") is done as "One Codfish Ball" in some places.

(Not to be confused with "The Codfish Ball" from the 1930s.)

A search for "cod" in the DT yields 37 hits. Only a few of them refer to men's fashion in the middle ages.

Seine nets can be used for catching cod;

Also Los Pescadores by Buffy Sainte Marie

There are lots of songs about the distant water fishing industry written by singers from the ports of Hull (Mike Waterson), Grimsby (John Conolly, Bill Meek, Dave Evardson) and Fleetwood (Ron Baxter and Ross Cambell).

How about the sea shanty 'Cape Cod Girls'? It's about the fish as well as the geographic location...

Hi,

Allen die willen naar Is(e)land gaan.
= All, they would to   Iceland   go,   to catch cod and to fish with a will ...
The cod makes an appearance in the first and final verses only, as the reason for the trip described in the other verses.


Well, Cape Cod is a different kettle of fish:

- Beach Boys - Disney Girls

"Ferryland, Newfoundland ca. 1500-1993" is my own song about the underwater archaeology of the Newfoundland cod fishery.

You can find a lead sheet and some sound files on my web site by starting here.

Hi,

Let me add that "Allen die willen naar Island gaan" is a Dutch song. It probably wouldn't have been too hard to find out, or guess, but I might as well say so here.

This is a great song by John Tams, written for the play The Good Hope produced at The National Theatre 2001-2002.

All Clouds the Sky

Preface based on words from Sir Walter Scott's novel, The Antiquary

How high the price How deep the water That makes widows out of wives For this is not fish you're eating This is men's lives

All clouds the sky, the boats are leaving
One last goodbye, dark waters call us on
The northern sea knows well the sound of grieving
How slight the fate we put our trust upon

Then go we must, no longer can we tarry
The water's wide yet we must go and try
And like a bird on a silvery morning
Home to your side we will chance to fly

Thanks everyone. Some great songs to be had. The Dutch song lists an author but I can't read Dutch so I don't know if it is a traditional song or a newish one. I need to avoid copyright problems so will probably not include songwriters unless I know them personally. I want everyone to be able to say to their friend it's ok to make a couple of copies of this..everyone has agreed to it...

Yep, you seem to get the picture Lilo.

It was in the papers last week that a study has concluded that cod have regional accents. (The study found this nugget to be useful for migration monitoring.)

Cod with regional accents would of course in the oral gills tradition write their own songs that are indigenous to their particular school. There was something about practicing their scales but I only caught the tail end of it.
