Can you guess what child this is?

|How about another Christmas carol? How about "What Child is This?" The minor key helps to emphasize longing for the Messiah. The British tune "Greensleeves" is a familiar one. Even Shakespeare mentions it in "The Merry Wives Of Windsor." |
One source said the tune was composed by King Henry VIII for Anne Boleyn, but other sources dispute that. (When I was a child I thought only people in green sleeves were allowed to sing it!)
Although there are 2 texts associated with this, I have used the text "What Child Is This", taken from a longer poem written by William C. Dix. I hope you enjoy taking this quiz and humming along.
Aren't you glad we don't have to wear green sleeves to sing this beautiful Christmas carol?
