Thread Name: Greensleeves History of
Subject: RE: Greensleeves History of
This makes the third or fourth thread recently where Flanders and Swann have come up. (The second or third time I've done it.) There is a wonderful monologue by Michael Flanders on the "At the Drop of a Hat" CD giving a very tongue-in-cheek history of how the "Greensleeves" came to be written (as the first act finale of a musical written by Kyd and Skelton!!!!)

Highly recommended for those who like literate humor.
