Subject: RE: George Butterworth (Musician-died 1916)
The superb 'Banks of Green Willow' is one of the most popular pieces played on 'Classic FM'. I often sing along in the car, but for the second tune I always sing 'Hunting the Wren'/'Milder to Malder'. Does anyone know the connection between this and 'Green bushes' and which had the tune first, please, if known?
