Despite being familiar with both pieces of music for many years, I have only just noticed the similarities between the opening of the storm interlude In Benjamin Britten’s “Peter Grimes” and Leonard Bernstein’s “A boy like that” from Westside Story.
His nets set, a fisherman heads for home.

Before the fishermen set out, the boats and nets are prepared:
All must be sea-worthy.
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
Psalm 107. 23 – 25
