One of the great English folk tunes there pma. It's authorship has been fought over since Elizabethan times, and some say it was even written by Henry VIII.

It was given the full orchestral treatment by Vaughan Williams, along with one of my own favourites called 'Lovely Joan', He also did some variations on 'Dives and Lazarus' better known now as 'Star of the County Down', all classic examples of the Dorian mode.
