Greensleeves in Bb

Download this song!

Author Comments

This little arrangement was a little side venture that was inspired by much boredom today. Greensleeves is a famous folk tune from the Middle Ages, and I tried to use the main theme to create a song of both conflict and beauty using medieval instruments (that seems pretty usual for me, eh?).

I am very much open to constructive criticism. In addition, I EXPECT that every person who gives a 0 or 1 gives a review as well or sends me a message explaining why the song was bad so I can either improve or fix the issue.


its a beautiful song!!! =D
i love it!!

samulis responds:

Also a very old project, wow, haha. Almost forgotten this.


I do find beauty and, yes, some conflict in this awesome arrangement. You did a very good job on this. There is one problem on my end of the line. The song is skipping rather badly. I am not sure if that is from the song or if my connection is bad.

samulis responds:

Hmm... may be your connection. If you have the same issue with a downloaded version, I can try sending you the original .mp3 or .wav.

Curious, Indeed

Overall, it fits in very well with the role you meant it to be. However, there is one thing I would like to mention- it's not bad, in fact it's good!, but I would like to point out how the song both starts and ends in Bb. I understand that is a standard rule of composing music (that you must end in the key you began), though I do not see so many pieces ending how traditional music dictates.

I thank you for your true turn to the past.

samulis responds:

Also, the song ends on the same chord and inversion of the chord. :)

It's not technically a rule, but many chord progressions (especially those used in chorales) end on the same chord as the beginning. It's perfectly fine to end a piece on a different chord, it's just the resolution feels different (unless you experience a key change). I've seen and played several songs that have different keys and chords at the end, although most of those are modern classical or jazz.

Good work, sire!

I've heard many arrangments, sire, but thy one is very good. Thank you, sire, for piece of classical music.
However, not Middle Ages, sire, but Renaissance.

People find this review helpful!
samulis responds:

Thank ye, good sir, for your kind response. :)

We can argue period whenever, as the piece's origin was in the taverns of the High Middle Ages yet its methods are in much later music (you wouldn't see so much conflict in a true early chorale).

Very good

I love the track. Keep it up.

samulis responds:

Thanks for you nice feedback. :)
