|Comments:||"Browning" or "The Leaves be Green" was a popular tune of the late 16th. century that several English Composers have used as the basis of a composition. Versions by William Byrd, Clement Woodcock and Henry Stonings (in 5 parts) and by Elway Bevin (in 3 parts) have survived. In all of them, one part plays the basic melody while other parts play variations and harmonies on the melody, the melody moving from part to part. In most, the first statement of the melody is in the tenor followed by the bass then moving to the upper parts.|
