Subject: RE: 'Shenandoah' rhythm/meter
so what? are you suggesting that the song has to be sung this way. Frankly, from the point of musical pleasure, I prefer the slower less authentic versions.
Musicality in my opinion should always take preference over authenticity.
Your version IN MY OPINION is useful only as a museum piece and as an example of authenticity
