The Playford Ball, 103 Early English Country Dances
The Playford Ball is a landmark collection of the classic dances originally published by John Playford in The English Dancing Master (1651) and other 17th and 18th century dance publications. For the first time, dance lovers and scholars can compare Playford's original tunes and instructions with the changes that have been made over the last two centuries.
Music is chorded and each dance given in modern instructions with facsimiles of original dance and music pages. Brief essays describe meaning or references; if extant, song lyrics set to the tune are reproduced. Over 150 period illustrations of persons, places, and things referred to in the dance titles are included. An extensive bibliography supports the documentation for every dance and tune.
The dances selected for this collection represent the core repertory of the Country Dance and Society Society from 1915 through 1990. The purpose of the book was an appreciation for the legacy of Cecil Sharp, for his accomplishment in reviving interest in English country dancing and bring the world's attention to the works of John Playford and his successors. With the extensive facsimiles, source materials and dance and tune reconstructions, the text provides a valuable resource for those interested in reconstructing colonial American social dance.
