For Arbeau, here's article giving sources for many of the melodies:
I suspect if you looked them up you'd find few have words, which is
very different from other genres such as ECD, where it's easy to find
Uracca's point about singing while dancing is a good one; the dancers
sang while dancing carols, but there's no reference to dancers singing
or even dancing to a choir after that.
