Description

A favorite at Christmas and throughout the year, this arrangement of Greensleeves (What Child is This?), performed by its arranger, virtuoso Jarrod Radnich, retains the original song's sense of calm while still maintaining fresh and wonderful ornamentation. This piano solo is from the Advanced collection. It contains some of the technique-intensive ornaments for which Jarrod Radnich is best known and tempers them with slower, yet equally moving and pleasing, measures.

The melody for this carol is “Greensleeves,” dating from Elizabethan time or perhaps even earlier. The song was first registered in 1850 to Richard Jones with lyrics that were neither religious nor respectable, and in fact Shakespeare mentions it by name in "The Merry Wives of Windsor" in which is it played while traitors are being hung. In 1865 William Chatterton Dix wrote "The Manger Throne," three verses of which created "What Child Is This?" and in 1871 Sir John Strainer harmonized it and introduced it as the Christmas carol most are familiar with today. This new more modern arrangement changes the meter to 4/4 (rather than the familiar 3/4) and couples it with subtle rhythmic nuance, which adds freshness to the piece while at the same time endowing it with a stronger sense of calm.
