By Choice: Dances for Volume 8 is a companion booklet to the CDS Boston English Dance Collection CD series by Bare Necessities. It is a collection of twelve dances to accompany a selection of favorites tunes chosen by Bare Necessities. To provide a volume of dances to accompany such lovely music is a treat.

Volume 8 is something of a complement to the previous volume 7, “By Request”, which was a selection of dances chosen by the dance community. Of the dances in the book, nine are duple minor, all in proper formation. The remaining dances are a three couple longways, a two couples facing, and a four couple dance. The dances range in date of composition from 1651 to 2001. 

Dances Include:

The Haymakers
Easter Tuesday
Rafe's Waltz
Softly Good Tummas
Bonny Gray-Ey'd Morn
Muriel's Measure
Angels Unawares
The Princess
Cockle Shells
Turning of the Year
Beggar Boy
