epic work conjures images of a ghostly pirate
fleet wandering the high seas. The opening
section paints an eerie picture of the forgotten
crew, interspersed with brief "shrieks"
as the phantoms burst in and out of view.
The music becomes much more aggressive as
listeners experience the adventures of life
at sea. Ultimately, the pirates' fates are
sealed, and they accept the fact that they
are destined to haunt the seas for eternity.
