    Not impressed, much prefer the Vaughan Williams orchestral version.
    Cheers MIKE.

    This is now my favourite rendition of Greensleeves

    The following from Wiki

    There is a persistent belief that Greensleeves was composed by Henry VIII for his lover and future queen consort Anne Boleyn. Boleyn allegedly rejected King Henry's attempts to seduce her, and this rejection may be referred to in the song when the writer's love "cast me off discourteously". However, the piece is based on an Italian style of composition that did not reach England until after Henry's death, making it more likely Elizabethan in origin
