On the Bryn Gwlad Early Music list, Damien asked:
After last Sunday's practice, Cindy and I talked about other
dances we don't do very often and Daniel joined in. I mentioned
a couple of dance books I have that I believe do not have extant
choreography, although I would love to be proved wrong. These
Danserye, by Tielman Susato (Netherlands / Belgium) - 1551
Paris Dancebook, by Pierre Attaingnant (France) - 1530
Both authors have quite a bit of content available in open source
form on the internet. If anyone is interested, I can bring the
books to our next event. Both are scored for multiple recorders
(three or four). Most of the music is quite nice.
Note that both authors are also used quite a bit by modern
musicians (e.g. Blackmore's Night uses both).
I am but an egg in the field of dance. Are these well-known in dance?
Brief Googling suggests that Attaingnant at least has basse dances and
some other types.
