    _Poems of the Sea_ is tonal and easy to listen to, even, in the opinion of some, conventional, as Bloch himself intended. _Waves_ depicts the feature of the title, gently rolling towards the shore, swelling and drawing back. in the middle section there is a simple melody, a moment when the sea is quiet, but not for long. _Chanty_ is like a folk-song, with an Irish tang to it and a touch of melancholy, while At Sea allows the composer to indulge in a mood of gusto and panache. Great waves surge forward, strong and unbridled in exhilarating music, in which one can almost feel the wind and the spray blown in one's face.
