BIBLIOGRAFIA

Una sea shanty (chanty) era la canzone di lavoro marinaresco sulle grandi navi a vela.
Finita l’epoca dei grandi velieri il repertorio delle canzoni marinaresche documentato dai veterani in pensione, è sbarcato sulla terra.
Oggi sono cantati da ex-marinai o figli di ex-marinai, appassionati di vela e amanti del mare in generale, rievocatori storici, musicisti folk.


Innanzitutto abbiamo una raccolta moderna: “Shanties from the Seven Seas” di Stan Hugill (1961) con informazioni di prima-mano, la cosiddetta “shantyman’s bible“!
L’ultimo degli shantyman Hugill (1906-1992) ha lasciato delle pietre miliari sul suo cammino, pubblicando ben 5 libri sui canti dei marinai (gli ultimi due nel 1977 “Sea Shanty” e “Songs of the Sea”) divulgandoli in numerose registrazioni e spettacoli live insieme al gruppo folk del Merseyside, gli Stormalong John.


Sul suo canale You Tube Hulton Clint ha dato vita ad un grande progetto “Hugill Shanties from the Seven Seas”, per cantare tutte le canzoni marinaresche (oltre 400 titoli) dal libro di Stan Hugill.
Hulton Clint soprannominato lo “You Tube Chanteyman” ci restituisce le canzoni marinaresche in tutta la loro schiettezza.


Un’altra raccolta -ancorchè piccola- viene dallo shantyman John Short (1839-1933) di Watchet (Somerset, Inghilterra) così come trascritta da Cecil Sharp nel 1914.
Tom e Barbara Brown di Combe Martin scoprirono l’eredità del marinaio, il manoscritto di Cecil Sharp nel “Vaughan Williams Memorial Library” e diedero inizio al progetto Short Sharp Shanties per registrare tutte le canzoni di John Short interpretate da vari artisti (una sessantina circa di canti distribuiti in tre volumi).

STANLEY SLADE – Bristol Shellback Shantyman: 28 canti marinareschi registrati negli anni 50 da Peter Kennedy e pubblicato nel 1975 su audiocassetta per la Folktrax

Sea shanty (or sea chanty) was the working song on the Golden Age of Sail.
Later the repertoire of the sea shanty, documented by retired veterans, has landed on the shore.
Today they are sung by ex-sailors or children of ex-sailors, sailing enthusiasts and lovers of the sea in general, historical re-enactors, folk musicians.

Sea shanty A-Z list: Stan Hugill

“Shanties from the Seven Seas” by Stan Hugill (1961) with first-hand information.
The last of the shantyman Hugill (1906-1992) left some milestones on his path, publishing as many as 5 books on the songs of the sailors (the last two in 1977 “Sea Shanty” and “Songs of the Sea”) spreading them in numerous recordings and live shows together to the folk group of Merseyside, the Stormalong John.


On his YouTube channel, Hulton Clint began a great project, “Hugill Shanties from the Seven Seas” to sing all the chanteys (“over 400 shanties,” ) from Stan Hugill’s book; Hulton Clint (Ranzo) nicknamed the “You Tube Chanteyman” gives us the seafaring songs in their frankness.

John Short

Another important collection comes from the shantyman John Short (1839-1933) of Watchet (Somerset, England) as transcribed by Cecil Sharp in 1914.
Tom and Barbara Brown of Combe Martin discovered the legacy of the sailor, the manuscript of Cecil Sharp in the “Vaughan Williams Memorial Library” and they began the project Short Sharp Shanties to record all the songs of John Short interpreted by various artists.

ASSASSIN’S CREED

Una grande rivalutazione di questi canti è avvenuta poi più recentemente con la produzione in versione piratesca del famosissimo videogioco Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag (2013); la trama è un’intricata vicenda basata sui ricordi del pirata Edward Kenway  ed è ambientata nel mare dei Caraibi in un arco storico che va dal 1715 al 1721.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (Sea Shanty Edition, Vol. 1 e 2)
Assassin’s Creed Rogue (Sea Shanty Edition) il sequel del video-gioco distribuito nel 2014

ASSASSIN’S CREED: BLACK FLAG & ROGUE

A great re-evaluation of these songs took place more recently with the pirate version of the famous Assassin’s Creed videogame: Black Flag (2013); the plot is an intricate story based on the memories of the pirate Edward Kenway and it is set in the Caribbean Sea from 1715 to 1721.

Anche la saga “Pirates of the Caribbean” (Pirati dei Caraibi)  ha  ridestato un grande interesse sui canti dei pirati e gli ideatori della produzione hanno coinvolto un gran numero di artisti folk-rock  per il rilascio di ben due compilation.

Also the saga “Pirates of the Caribbean” has revived a great interest on the songs of the pirates and the production involved a large number of folk-rock artists for two compilations.
