That's essentially correct.  Specifically, Casulle fits nicely with the
same three period arrangements of La Spagna as Lauro, the "national dance
of Carolingia", which we've been sporadically talking up since the 70s.
 Those arrangements of La Spagna are *really* common recordings -- we have
about a dozen decent recordings of them -- so Casulle winds up the most
convenient Burgundian basse danse to teach...
