SCAers might be interested in a book I published a few years ago called
'The Christmas Carol Dance book'. It is available from
. It contains music, lyrics and historical notes for 64 carols-including
many renaissance ones-and instructions for dances that echo in their
steps and figures the various carols' historical origins and lyrical
storyline. We have used the collection to very good effect putting on
many many memorable Christmas balls, and I believe others have also used
it to good effect. If I may say so, the book is beautifully presented
and the dances are all well crafted in historic styles and really work

Wishing all lots of fun this Christmas,

John Garden

The obvious choice is Ding Dong Merrily on High, which we already use
for Official Bransle.
