You may be thinking of the lovely setting Ed Trickett recorded on his first Folk-Legacy recording, The Telling Takes Me Home. I'll have to go check on the name of the fellow out in Colorado who set it to the fine modal tune Ed sings. Okay, got it! His name is Andy Taylor. Harry Tuft joins Ed on the song on that particular recording.

No midi's but too many options on composers. I found these in OCLC's library database (you're library needs a subscription to search) I'd recommend you ask for interlibrary loan, but most of these had only 1 or 2 libraries with holdings reported. Read author as composer, I checked the records for Masefield as author of the word.s

OK hotshots, and you know who you are...(the search engine thread identifies some of you):

I've searched in vain for several months for my version of Sea Fever. Only the poem is in the DT. I've searched using the search engine Google with the words: Sea Fever, sheetmusic, choral and various combinations of those words. I've listened to CD snippets at CDnow. Here's what I have so far:

1) The poem Sea Fever by John Masefield has been set to music using several different tunes/versions. The poem is in the DT if you don't know it.

2)My version is not the one by Ireland, Porterfield, Taylor or Hogg. I can't find a gif or sound sample of the one by Albert di Vito.

I would really like to find out who wrote my version, so I can order the sheet music and get Dave (the ancient mariner) to sing it for us. Since I've already purchased the Ireland version sight unseen and discovered it's not the right one, I'd prefer to see or hear another version before I order it. It anyone can locate a gif or sound sample, I'd be very appreciative...might even convey the Search Champ Award or something. I have a short midi of my version if anyone wants to PM me in order to hear it.

Anyone up for the challenge?
