Thread Name: Greensleeves History of
Subject: RE: Greensleeves History of
Chances are that's right, particularly as the claim for Henry VIII's authorship was not originally for the song, but for the tune "Greensleeves". This is, in fact, the name of a set of tunes used for the "Bacca Pipes" morris jig and not the song tune.

I have no idea if the claim for authorship of these tunes is correct.

Cheers!
