Salty Dog

(click the voicing to view and hear online)


Two Parts     Three Parts

The text and voicing of Salty Dog  is particularly suited for all-boys groups.  A "salty dog" is the seaman's "slanguage" for a "crusty ole sailor."  In the two-part voicing, Part I is written to fit Boy Treble and/or Cambiata I (A-a, above and below middle C). Part II is written to fit the early adolescent Baritone (D-d, above and below middle C).   In the three-part voicing, Part I is for Cambiata I; Part II for Cambiata II;  and Part III for early adolescent Baritone.  


Again, all-boys choirs are not the only voicings for which  this sork is suitable.  Check the two-part or the  three-part  variable voicing charts to see the other possible voicings..
