Fantasia On Greensleeves (orig)  Pk image
2 Flutes (or solo violins), Harp (or Piano)
Strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Bass)

This is the original orchestral version of Vaughan Williams' famous fantasia which first appeared in his opera "Sir John in Love". Apart from the main folk-tune "Greensleeves", the centre section uses another folk-tune entitled "Lovely Joan". This version, adapted and arranged by Ralph Greaves, has been popular in the concert hall and in recordings since it first appeared.
Now out of print in the Oxford University Press catalogue, this work has been newly engraved and reissued in this Goodmusic edition but otherwise unaltered.
This orchestration can be used to accompany a choral setting of "Greensleeves" which has been arranged by Philip Lane (and approved by the Vaughan Williams Trust) and is published by us in the Roberton Publications catalogue. There is a version for mixed voice choir (SATB, No.63270) or for female voice choir (SSA, No.75479). Each version has two different sets of lyrics - the traditional Greensleeves lyrics and also a setting of "The King of Love my shepherd is" - either can be used.
There is also an amateur orchestra version of the Fantasia on Greensleeves arranged by David Stone available in the Goodmusic Concert Classics series No.GMCL007.
