Scotty Rotten Origins: Is Green Sleeves really Irish? (85* d) RE: Is Green Sleeves really Irish? 04 Mar 99


I think it has been said that Greensleeves was written by a lute composer named John Johnson while serving as Lutenist for the King or Queen of England...Johnson also wrote some variations on it ...so did Francis Cutting...these two were active in the late 16th- early 17th century...if you come across these give them a listen, they're exceptional!...Scotty
