Thread Name: A Capella CDs???
Subject: RE: A Capella CDs???
I had to laugh when I read about the group that "mix[es] acapella with capella."

John Roberts and Tony Barrand, whose discography can be found here, sing mostly a capella.

True sea chanteys (not to be confused with sea songs in general) are always done a capella, and so are other work songs, such as those sung by gandy dancers. It's easy to see why.
