Allen Die Villen Naar Island (All Who Want to Iceland Go)

Another Dutch forebitter collected by Stan Hugill. This song comes from the codfishers of Iceland. Hugill's source, Kees Hos, found the place-names on an old Dutch sea-chart:

  • Lezart: the Lizard
  • Sorlines: the Scillies
  • Kaap Clara: Cape Clear
  • Rockall: Rokol
  • Kollen: old Dutch for the type of cod-lines with hooks used on the Iceland Ground.
