Yes, it's the Nurnber manuscript, wit Italian hits such as Amoroso an
Roti-boully. There is a copy at Greg's web pages (
http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/nurnberg/) and translation in Smith.

You might as well do some Allemande, Arbeau believes it's of a German
origin, and the name sure suggest so: "L’allemande est une dance plaine de
mediocre gravité, familiere aux Allemands, & croy qu’elle soit de noz plus
anciennes, car nous sommes descendus des Allemands".

Also, you could probably get away with basse dances from Brussels
manuscript, since Margarette d'Autriche was a daughter of Maxmilian the
1st, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, which covers basicly whole today

That's all my tips, good luck and let us know if you think of something
