dc.description "Down to the Sea in Ships" should be italicized whenever possible. en
dc.description.abstract Well-known for his film, television, and the Broadway stage works, Robert Russell Bennett was also a prolific composer for the wind band medium. One of his last large-scale works for band, Down to the Sea in Ships, was released by Warner Brothers Publications in 1969. The work is a five-movement suite drawn from the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) production Project 20, a television documentary series that aired from 1954 to 1973, for which Bennett supplied the musical score. The original set included a condensed score and parts with numerous errors and is currently out of print. The primary purpose of this project is to create a critical edition of Bennett’s Down to the Sea in Ships that includes a new full score and a set of parts free of errors and ambiguous or conflicting information. An anticipated benefit of this new edition will be the reintroduction of Down to the Sea in Ships into the repertoire of concert bands, and a renewed interest in the music of Robert Russell Bennett. en
