Our Music

“Though my sails be torn and tattered, and the mast be turned about, let the night wind chill me to my very soul,
Though the spray might sting my eyes, and the stars no light provide, give me just another morning light to hold…”

“A Sailor’s Prayer,” Rod MacDonald, 1978. Recorded with permission for Bounding Main’s Maiden Voyage album.
