[SCA-Dance] Need assistance, please

The difficulty with teaching 16th century Italian dances lies in finding recorded music. Almost all the easier ones that I teach use music that is no longer available or which was never available online. The only easy one I could think of that is readily available is Fedelta, which is a country-dance-like circle for as many as will. The music track can be downloaded from CD Baby (Artist: Musica Subterranea, album: Cornucopia). Instructions here:

 Hello Dance Masters,
 I need some desperate help please. I need to help my
 Candidate for the
 Madrone Sergeantry learn to Dance! This sounds pretty
 extreme, but she can
 dance (line dancing) and I have some Dance Awards from back
 in the days of
 the West. So :
 For her demo:
 1) Can someone email me the pattern of the steps to Graca
 Amoroso along with
 the name or a link to the music. I may have the piece on a
 recording here
 somewhere. I have danced this in the past for demos, so I
 can dust off the
 skills with a bit of a prompt.
 For her dance to teach:
 2) Can someone recommend a simple-to-teach (she has to teach
 it) dance that
 an Italian Courtesan would have known, along with music
 links, or name of
 the piece. I think her persona is pretty late period
 We have four and a half months to learn the music and steps,
 so no time to
 Lady Rignach of Argyll
 Lancer of Madrone
