I was introduced to The Bergen
, written by Jez Lowe
, when I joined the Tyneside Maritime Chorus
in 2011. This is another Jez Lowe melancholy song which tells of a bonny lass dreaming and fearing for her fisherman lover on the bonny barque, the Bergen
somewhere out at sea far, far away.
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
