Erm.  Eek, even.  The only German-based dances I've heard of are from
that letter from northern Italy to Germany, where the dances were (as
I dimly recall) somewhat mutated from the Italian versions.  Thea of
Jaravellir's work.  Is this called the Nurnberg Manuscript?  I'm at
work and can't refresh my memory, but the one I recall vaguely has
what I think of as the "three blind mice" chorus -- Vite de Colei, I
think, for two dancers "improper".

Any suggestions of something I can work up relatively easily, or
should I just try to dig out Thea's handout and flog my failing
