  • Greensleeves Lesson

    by Dejan Farkas

    This time we go back to the Renaissance period in the 16th century, and this romanesca (song form composed of four chords with a simple, repeating bass) is the most popular one from that period. It is widely believed, but unproven, that it was composed by King Henry VIII for his lover and queen consort Anne Boleyn.

  • Evening Bells
