1 - The setting of this recording is unspecified, although it sounds like it takes place in a home in Saint Eustatius. It begins with a few men singing whaling songs, then progresses to a group of women singing ballads and spirituals. It ends with a roving theater group playing David and Goliath, with drum corps accompaniment. Very few names are given in the interviews that take place after each song. [Source: Editor]
:: Recording Notes ::
0 - The drummer identifies that this piece is a "gallop," played for dancing in a play. David and Goliath dance before they go to battle. [Source: Editor]
