Shiver Me Timberrrs! Pirates and the Sea

In hon­our of Inter­na­tion­al Talk Like A  Pirate Day, Cap’n of the Aether­waves Mr Elrik Mer­lin is pleased to present a pro­gramme of Music of the Sea and Pirates. Well, not just the sea, but water in gen­er­al.

You can expect a wide range of gen­res from clas­si­cal (Han­del’s Water Music; Vaugh­an Williams’ Sea Sym­pho­ny) to folk (Tra­di­tion­al chanteys* and June Tabor’s Ashore album for exam­ple) and much more – there’s even some clas­sic Elec­tron­i­ca in there, and of course there’s some Hans Zim­mer: how could we not? So splice the main­brace, me hearties, and tune in for a wild ride on the briny (and oth­er bod­ies of water)!

*Note: Some mate­r­i­al may con­tain strong lan­guage.

The pic­ture above is of “The Cap­ture of the Pirate, Black­beard” by 19th cen­tu­ry artist Jean Leon Jerome Fer­ris.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States or Cana­da, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. To lis­ten from out­side North Amer­i­ca, click here to start your play­er .
