After being in a class with "Glory of the West" and seeing Playford's
and Dafydd Cyhoeddwr's reconstruction
<http://www.pages.drexel.edu/~white/ECD/GloryWest.htm>, I'm pretty
sure that the music I have, with the pattern ABBABBABB, and the
Terpsichore booklet don't fit the dance in Playford and my own
notions. Dafydd appears to agree:
Glory of the West
for two couples facing (square).
Reconstructed by Dafydd Cyhoeddwr, music fix suggested by Lady
Aleyn, by June Tabor (structure is wrong, but I love the
Popular Tunes in 17th Century England, by Jeremy Barlow
(structure still wrong, tempo great)
Country Capers, by the New York Renaissance Band (structure
wrong again, tempo rather fast)
I think what I want is music with AABBAABBAABB (and maybe that's the
fix mentioned but not described). Anyone have a source, by chance?
