That's a great list! After some consideration, my top three for this album would have to be the following:

1) Sixteenth Century Greensleeves
2) Catch the Rainbow
3) Man on the Silver Mountain

(I think my overall top two favourite Rainbow songs are 'Stargazer' and 'Kill the King' though, however they're not from this album)
