The music for Saltarello II is in the game. There's also another
period dance tune in the game. I'm not sure what the name is; it
appears in a collection published by Phalese from 1580. There's no
period choreography that I know of for it, but it is used for the
modern ECD dance "Ashford Anniversary"
