The Catch Book, ed. Paul Hillier, Oxford University Press 1987 has some rounds among its 153 related catches, mostly from 17th c England.

The Million's Glee Book, ed. I.B.Woodbury, Cornish, Lamport and Company 1851 has a round I've seen nowhere else "Yes, 'Tis the Indian Drum"(Bishop):
Hark! 'tis the Indian drum
The rocks and woods around
Echo the warlike sound,
Echo the warlike sound,
They come, they come, they come, they come, they come
Yes, 'tis the Indian drum.............the drum
Yes, 'tis the Indian drum............ drum
Hark! hark! they come, Hark! they come, they come, they come

The book is a collection of glees, ballads, songs arranged for sole, duet or quartet
