Thread Name: Greensleeves ... Whence the name?
Subject: RE: GREENSLEEVES ... Whence the name?
Greg where is Greensleeves mentioned before 1580? No one else has ever reported finding such. And where can I find a copy of the tune called "Kiss my arse"?

As I believe is mentioned in the history thread, "Greensleeves" is a harmonization of the cut time passamezzo antico and was known all over Europe and ends up being different almost every time it is noted down.
