A bit Greensleeves-ish

The first section of this jig is built on the same chords as Greensleeves, or the Passamezzo antico according to early music types (like me). It follows rather nicely after the anonymous Greensleeves variations found in ‘The Division Violin’ or as an interlude between verses of "The Old Year Now Away is Fled" set to the same tune.

And now we return you to your regularly scheduled programme of Irish traditional music.
