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 - This is a play about David and Goliath, acted out by amature actors in a casual setting. A drum corps participates, and often the crowd is heard in the background. The pagean ends with the singing of "While Shepherds Watched Their Flock." [Source: Editor]
