If you are ok with doing later English county dances, the tune for Female sailor 
was used for the Victorian carol "Masters in this Hall". Of course, you can do 
bransles and pavans and many country dances to anything with a steady beat, even 
disco music.

Has anyone attempted to match traditional, modern Christmas music with SCA 

We are planning dance for our Barony's Yule Revel and thought it might be fun to 

do some performance pieces to Christmas music. We would use 
only medieval-sounding songs. For example, I have "Deck the Halls" played on a 
Celtic harp and "O Holy Night" by the Vienna Boys Choir, plus about a dozen 
others that may be appropriate. And yes, we have "Greensleeves." 

But I thought I would check and see if anyone has already tried this, and knows 
which dances match well with which songs, before I sit down and begin to do the 
analysis myself.

Many thanks,
