1-8, in order:

Quadran Pavan
Earl of Essex Measure
Old Alman
Queen's Alman
Madam Sosilia's Alman
Black Alman

The one you've been doing in Mooneschadowe forever.

Lord Morgan's

This will be determined by each set dancing the dance. If anyone is 
worried about their dancers getting confused by variations, go over 
variations with them so they'll know what to expect.

Same as whirligig. Of course, the dancers fromt the Steppes will be 
using Guillaume's version. I can't speak for other groups.

They are forthcoming.

I'll post the reconstructions up on the web within the next week or two.
