Whalsey: Annotations

B:Old-Lore Miscellany (1912, p. 79)
N:A variant of "Greensleeves (4)." 
N:The 'G' note in measure seven of each strain was sharped in the 
N:printed version. Cecil Sharp thought it a 'modern' alteration, and
N:advised that it probably was played natural.
N:The tune is from a manuscript collection [given A.W. Johnston] by 
N:"the late" Mrs. Balfour, which had been in the possession of her 
N:husband, the late Colonel David Balfour of Balfour and Trenaby. 
N:The Ms. also contains "Day Dawn" and "Foula Reel"..."
