I'm sure most Newfoundlanders (and probably other Maritime residents, too) know this song quite well.

I just discovered this song a few weeks ago and heard a rousing rendition of it. VERY impressed (v=hKvIbUk-AAs on youtube). However, I have doubts about it being the original rendition (in what it sounds like, the charisma with with it's sang, etc.)

I'd like to hear a rendition as close the original as possible. Realizing this is practically impossible given the lack of recording equipment at the time of the song's composition (1820), I nevertheless would like to hear as close as possible the most likelhy rendition to the original that you know of. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
