A lyrical piece for string orchestra inspired by the composer's childhood experience living along the eastern shore of Connecticut. The three sections of this composition represent the towns of New London, Mystic, and Stonington, with a return to New London in the end. Soaring melodies and flowing legato lines provide an excellent opportunity to work on phrasing, tone, and dynamic expression.

Sea shanties (or chanteys) were folk songs sung a capella by sailors to set a rhythm for specific tasks on a ship performed in unison. Though shanties were practical, most are very beautiful melodies as well. Chosen for their lyricism, these two expressive songs, Go To Sea Once More and The Banks of Newfoundland, are arranged for string orchestra with flowing phrases and interwoven harmonies that express a love for the sea.
