I'd like to thank everyone who responded; several readers passed my
query along to Dutch friends. The basic summary is that early Dutch
shantys are very rare, and these early songs don't have a chorus or
call/response, which was the main thing I was looking for.

Looks like I'll have to stick to Ravenscroft!
