Charles Cyril Hendrickson and Hendrickson Frances
Minuets for Dancing (Book + CD) B 894
Minuets for Dancing (Book + CD)
The music comes from two colonial American sources: the manuscript collection of minuets made by John Ormsby, a dancing master active in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland in the 1750s, and a group of printed English minuet collections from about the same time that belonged to Thomas Jefferson. For this publication, each of the dances was interpreted and reconstructed using period sources. Several pages are devoted to the technique of 18th-century deportment, figures (or "geography") of the minuet, honors for both the woman and the man, the English minuet step, a complete bibliography of period sources, and there is a first-hand account of the terror induced by a gentleman's first performance of the minuet at a public ball. Chords are indicated on the music and the figures have been matched with each piece of music.
