The journey started on April 6, 1609, when the Halve Maen (Half Moon ) left Texel, a small Dutch island. The ship was captained by Henry Hudson and was commissioned by the VOC Chamber of Amsterdam in the Dutch Republic to find a western passage to India. The Half Moon sailed through The Narrows into Upper New York Bay on September 2, 1609.

Can you imagine what it would be like to be on that 60-foot sailboat during this amazing trip. I hope that the music will give you some ideas and images. Enjoy!
