Description About the Composer

Rolling Down to Old Maui - is a traditional sea song performed by many singers, including Stan Rogers. The lyrics were collect from the 1858 log of the Atkins Adams, but it was unclear how the melody went and someone eventually fit the lyrics to another melody resulting in in the song as we know it today. It was not a working song but rather more of a foc'sle shanty, the kind of song the men would sing to pass a pleasant evening here spent thinking about the delights ahead returning to Maui after a rough season of work.
In this easy arrangement, the melody is foremost; it begins with the soloist singing unaccompanied while the ensemble joins on the chorus with movoing and strong harmonies evoking the power of the sea and the men who worked the whale fisheries. The solo becomes a duet, later a trio and finally all sing the final verse in unison, making the final chorus seem all the richer. The piece moves easily between major and minor harmonies while the trio develops the haunting melody. The striking lyrics and the easy rise and fall of the lines makes this piece a wonderful addition to any repertoire. TTBB a cappella.
