The Greenland Fishery

The barque Europa is pictured above, not in the Arctic where the whaleships in the song went, but the Antarctic. If you’re interested in an adventurous vacation it’s one of the fine tall ships in Classic Sailing, where you’ll also find the ketch Donna Wood seen here in Greenland & Icelandic waters in summer when whale viewing is in season. All I know about the song is that it was collected by Cecil Sharp and published in 1908.
