Thread Name: Greensleeves ... Whence the name?
Subject: RE: GREENSLEEVES ... Whence the name?
G'day Greg Stephens,

Actually, that's Percy Scholes's theory ... not mine. I tend to regard Percy Scholes, in regard to strict music theory, much as I regard Brewer (of the ~ Dictionary of Phrase and Fable) in respect of linguistics!

(But I would be interested to see your detailed evidence of the tune before the introduction the Britain of the violin.)

Regards,

Bob Bolton
