According to Lomax, "Shenandoah, the most beautiful of all sea songs in English, probably began as a voyageur song on the rivers west of the Mississippi, taking its title from the Indians for whom the great valley of Virginia was named. It became, somehow, a capstan chantey and then a favourite song of the regular cavalry who sometimes fought the Indians out west, but also fell in love with and married Indian women." This American folk song is as you can hear of uncertain origin. Thanks to Liz for composing this wonderful arrangement for Shenandoah.
Hope you like it!
