This arrangement combines A Life On The Ocean Wave with The Drunken Sailor and The Song Of The Volga Boatmen. Obviously the "sea" isn't too calm in this arrangement and it will have your players, if not your audience, feeling sea-sick!!

This piece has been extremely popular as an arrangement for Descant Recorders and Piano, and after several requests has now been arranged for string orchestra. It has proved to be very popular with several school orchestras. I hope you enjoy it as much as they have.
