„Greensleeves“ is based on an Italian style of composition.
Found in several late-16th-century and early 17th-century sources and preserved at the University of Cambridge.
Christmas and New Year texts were associated with the tune from as early as 1686.
The tune is contained in several of Dowland’s lute manuscripts; in William Ballet’s Lute Book; in Sir John Hawkins’ transcripts of virginal music; in The Dancing Master; The Beggar’s Opera; and in many other books.
The earliest known source of the tune -Trinity College, Dublin ms. D. I.21, c. 1580 - known as "William Ballet's lute book“- gives the tune in the melodic minor scale.
"Greensleeves" is also often played in a natural minor scale and in the Dorian Mode.
This arrangement is inspired on the transcripts of virginal music from Sir John Hawkins’.
The piece is appropriate for beginner students or amateurs and without any doubt very pleasant to listen when played by an experienced ensemble. It can be used in concerts and all sorts of spiritual or religious events.
Thank you very much for taking your time to read this text and to listen to the file.
I hope you have a lot of fun and enjoy the music.
Thanks to Claudia Eppelt for the cover design, all the Love and inspiration.
Special Thanks to Nina, Stray Queen Mimi, Carlinhos, Pontinha, Maria Joaninha, Schwarzenegger, Koboldinha.
For all Living beings on Earth, for our Ancestors,
Thank You for all of You
All Your Love and Compassion.
Luis Anjos Teixeira
