Portsmouth Town (A rollicking Sea Piece)..1927..Evan Marsden aka Eric Mareo.

This is exactly as described on the tin! Marsden has written it in the style of many other nautical themed tune and in bars 71-76 there is a change from 2/4 to 6/8 at a lower tempo to incorporate the English halliard shanty, Hanging Johnny. This rather appropriate because in 1937, following and eventful and scandal filled life, in 1936 he was sentenced to hang for the murder of his wife which was later commuted to life. Mateo was a popular musician and orchestra leader in New Zealand in the early part of the 20th. century. The score and MP3 will be added to the library later...Steve.
