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 for the singing range of the Male Treble and/or Cambiata I, (A-a, above and below middle C).  Part II is written in the comfortable singing range of the early adolescent Baritone (D-d, above and below middle C).   In the three-part voicing, Part I fits the Cambiata I; Part II, Cambiata II;  and Part III, early adolescent Baritone. 


As with so many of our works, all-boys choirs are not the only voicings for which this work is suitable.  Check the two-part or the  three-part  variable voicing charts to see the other voicings possibilities.
