By Choice: Dances for Volume 8 - Bare Necessities English Country Dance Collection (Book)
A CDSS Publication
Helene Cornelius & Francis Attanasio
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.
