Hmmm... I have Skald Brandr-Toralfsson listed as author of verses 1-5 of
the version I possess; here's the whole header:

A Grazing Mace
- Anonymous
Tune: "Amazing Grace"
verses 1-5 by Skald-Brandr Toralfsson
verse 6 is the original anonymous creation
verse 7 from the HOPSFA Hymnal 3rd Edition
verse 8 is anonymous
verses 9-10 from Steven of the Grove's Bard Book - Ansteorra

This from my printouts from the Black Book of Locksley & other works
collected and created by Ioseph (Joe Bethancourt). Whatever my feelings
about the private man, Ioseph as scholar knows his stuff...

Shade and sweet water,
