English Dancing Master - 2 CD Set

Price: $28.00
In Stock: 10

Dance Music from the 17th and 18th Centuries. Played by the bands “Orange and Blue” and “The Ranchers.” In the period 1976-1981 the English Folk Dance and Song Society published 4 LP recordings (PLA1,2,3&4) of music for a selection of dances taken from the original Dancing Master books and published by Cecil Sharp in his Country Dance Book Series. The ances cover a wide range dating from Vol. 1 1st Edition (1650/51) to Vol 3, 2nd Edition (1726) and contained in the Country Dance Books (Parts 2,3,4&6). The information for each dance is as given on the original LP sleeve and is taken from the Country Dance Books. These 4LPs are no re-issued as a 2CD set recorded from digitally enhanced original analogue tapes to that they may reach a wider audience taking advantage of modern playback equipment and the means to vary speed to suit all dancers.
