"The Wolf" seems to be the only song from this that became popular, and may be the only extant part of the original.

BL catalogue entry says, "Song composed by William Shield and included in the 1783 Covent Garden production of John O'Keeffe and Samuel Arnold's opera The Castle of Andalusia." So the song is actually part of Arnold's Castle of Andalusia op. 20.
