I'm trying to find a good copy of Greensleeves to just relax to and so far, the best I've done is a Christmas album.

In your opinion, what's the best recorded version?

Have you tried poking around Magnatune? http://magnatune.com

Lara would feature some of the artists there in her Tudor History podcasts, and what I remember of what she used, sounded more like they were pulled from a good movie/miniseries set in the Tudor period than a random Christmas album.

I don't know about the 'best' recorded version as I have only heard a few. But I like Greensleeves by Blackmore's night. I also have a copy of a version from a cd i bought at hampton court which is quite traditional (if you'd like either send me a message :) )
