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
or the three-part variable
voicing charts to see the other possible voicings..
