"a dainty song of the Elizabethans, a sad and sweet loth to depart, the victory chant of Agincourt, the happy air of Greensleeves. "

The Battle of Agincourt (1415) was an English victory against a larger French army during the Hundred Years' War. It is the scene of Shakespeare's St Crispin's Day speech in his play Henry V.  

Greensleeves is a traditional English folk song originally thought to have been composed by King Henry VIII of England for Anne Boleyn, his second wife. However, he is not responsible for inflicting this song on the world. It was very popular in Elizabethan times.
