Roughyed Greensleeves ... Whence the name? (72* d) RE: GREENSLEEVES ... Whence the name? 12 Mar 02

I don't know about the words but the claim that the wastrel Henry V111 wrote the tune is nonsense. If I remember A L Lloyd he was of the opinion that the modern version of the song was an antiquiarian invention based to some degree on tne original. It's still a glorious tune though the words are crap.
