There is a very usable, if electronic, version available from Iwaz Music (http://www.iwazmusic.com/)
on the St Mark's Consort CD On A May Morn.  You can even listen to it on the website.

And yes, the dance is pretty cool, if repetitive (in that each couple does the same figure, but
from different ends of the line).  I've been teaching it for years.
