Songfacts®:

  • "Green Growith The Holy" is a carol composed by Henry VIII, King of England (note that "Holy" means "Holly" in Olde Englishe). Written in 2/4 time, this is short, as most of Henry's pieces appear to be. Among other places, it can be found in Music At The Court of Henry VIII, Transcribed And Edited By John Stevens, Second, Revised Edition, published by Stainer And Bell, London, (1973). This book was reprinted in 1978. >>
