What Child Is This
Traditional

Musicians Publications presents 'What Child Is This (Greensleeves)' arranged for woodwind quintet by Bill Holcombe. Scored for flute,oboe, clarinet, French horn, and bassoon, this arrangement is intermediate in difficulty.

'Greensleeves has been around since at least the 16th century. Shakespeare mentions it twice in The Merry Wives of Windsor, and it appeared widely throughout the 17th century in both song and lute publications. In the 19th century it assumed new lyrics as 'What Child is This?' and became integral to our own Christmas tradition, a somewhat ironic touch since its earliest lyrics suggest that it was a paean to a rather loose woman.'

- Steven Lowe, 2015
