[SCA-Dance] Music for Glory of the West?

After being in a class with "Glory of the West" and seeing Playford's
instructions <http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/playford_1651/101small.html>
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?
