Excerpt from English Folk-Chanteys: With Pianoforte Accompaniment, Introduction and Notes

Of these, the last two are at once the most recent and, in my opinion, the most authoritative. Each is the compilation of a professional sailor and avowedly a one - man collection, containing those chanteys only which its author had himself heard and learned at sea.

Here, of course, Mr. Whall and Mr. Bullen have the advantage of me. I have no technical or practical knowledge whatever of nautical matters; I have never even heard a chantey sung on board ship. But then I approach the subject from its aesthetic side - my concern is solely with the music of the chantey and with its value as an art - product - and this I contend is quite possible even for one who is as ignorant as I am of the technical details of the subject.
