Thread Name: George Butterworth (Musician-died 1916)
Subject: RE: George Butterworth
I'm no expert in these things but I understand that The Banks of Green Willow uses melodies from two folk songs, one the name of the piece and the other a tune called Green Bushes. It's a truly lovely piece of music. You'll probably realise that you know it when you hear it.
