Gibb Sahib,

The version of the Wild Goose with "topsails all a quiver" is in the DT data base.

The verse used in Shenandoah is on a recording by Andrew Calhoun on his Grapevine album. The song is just noted as traditional. The other verses that he uses are fairly common in other renditions of Shenandoah.

It seems to be that Hugill had mentioned the Shenandoah verse, but I've looked and can't find it.

Thanks for your help with this,
