Before I get flamed for ignorance:
I just checked the Terp booklet and almost all the English Country
dances are listed as "== in 4 ==".
But I'm not a musician -- I took a couple of years of music in middle
school decades ago, and the reproduction of Playford doesn't look
entirely like the modern notation I learned, so I'm not at all at home
with music.
