Renaissance

 

Anonymous or unattributed

» MIDI | Greensleeves

Most people seem to associate this tune with the Middle Ages, but I have read that its musical patterns put it firmly in the late 1600s. Other tunes called Greensleeves are older. This one became the Christmas song What Child is This?. The arrangment is the common hymnal version. Greensleeves had been also attribuited to King Henry VIII.

» MIDI | Pavane for shawm band (Philidor MS., 1610)
» MIDI | Be peace! Ye make me spill my ale!
» MIDI | This day day dawes

This is probably the Thomas Ravenscroft setting of this traditional tune.
