  1. Greensleeves

    "Greensleeves" is a traditional English folk song and tune, a ground either of the form called a romanesca or of its slight variant, the passamezzo antico. A broadside ballad by this name was registered at the London Stationer's Company in September 1580, by Richard Jones, as "A Newe Northen Dittye of ye Ladye Greene Sleves". Six more ballads followed in less than a year, one on the same day, 3 September 1580, then on 15 and 18 September, 14 December, 13 February 1581, and August 1581. It then appears in the surviving A Handful of Pleasant Delights as A New Courtly Sonnet of the Lady Green Sleeves. To the new tune of Green Sleeves. The tune is found in several late-16th-century and early 17th-century sources, such as Ballet's MS Lute Book and Het Luitboek van Thysius, as well as various manuscripts preserved in the Seeley Historical Library at the University of Cambridge.
