Well, on the 16th c. Italian front, I'll suggest Alba Novella, or maybe 
Alta Regina, two reasonably good, semi-easy dances from the front of Il 
Ballarino. We've been using them as not-quite-beginner dances for the 
repertoire, and getting a better recording than my synth one would be 

Or maybe Barriera, which is a favorite among the more hardcore Italian 
fans locally. (My personal fave in this style.) Or possibly Villanella, 
generally our introductory dance for the repertoire...
