Post Modern Music w/ AoS Theme
I'm sitting here listening to one of my favorite Scottish bands, the Tannahill Weavers. On their album Capernaum there is a wonderful instrumental set called The Unicorn Set: The Unicorn/Trip to Pakistan/an Andro. The first tune in the set is written in honor of the frigate Unicorn, which is at Dundee.

That gave me the idea for this thread.

Mil mentions a new opera about Nelson in this thread.

There is a track called The Erebus and the Terror on the Irish jazz/new age-y group Nightnoise's album Something of Time.

One of my favorites is the album of songs from the musical Mutiny!, featuring David Essex.

There's also a musical about John Paul Jones. You can down load a sample compilation (mp3) of the tracks from the site, as well as place an order for the CD.

Ghosts of Cape Horn by Gordon Lightfoot.

Anyone know of any other recently composed music?

I'm a sailor peg
And I lost my leg
I climbed up the topsails
I lost my leg
I'm shipping up to boston
(whoa oh oh)
(whoa oh oh)
(whoa oh oh)
I'm shipping off
To find my wooden leg
I'm a sailor peg
And I lost my leg
I climbed up the topsails
I lost my leg
I'm shipping up to boston
(whoa oh oh)
(whoa oh oh)
(whoa oh oh)
I'm shipping off
To find my wooden leg

I just noticed that this is available for download from iTunes. It's listed under "The Freedom Company" - John Paul Jones (Original Cast Recording)
