A New English Ball: Dances for Volume 11 B 2589
A New English Ball: Dances for Volume 11
Volume 11 of the English Country Dance Collection (the companion booklet to Volume 11 of the CDS Boston English Dance Collection CD series by Bare Necessities) focuses on dances by modern English composers, primarily Pat Shaw, who opened the door to modern composition in the second half of the 20th century, and whose Centenary it is this year. Also included are dances by William Ganiford, Bob Lilley, Colin Hume, Ellen Taylor, Naomi Alexander, Tom Cook, Ron Coxall, and Hazel Moir. With music from a wide range of sources, both old and modern, the volume shows tremendous variety in style and feel. After the passing in 2013 of former editor Helene Cornelius, Volume 11 is the first dance booklet edited by Brad Foster.

Dances Include:

Amy The Betrayed Lover Dear Papa and Dear Mama Delia The Fast Packet Josephine Koepoort Galliard Mr. Ganiford’s Delight Mr. Ganiford’s Maggot The Pride of Newcastle Stepping Stones Turn of the Tide Up on a Lofty Mountain White Wheat

Pat Shaw - His Life through Memories 1917-1977
Patrick Shuldham-Shaw was a man of many talents. He had a thirst for learning and had not only an encyclopedic knowledge of most subjects (including Whisky and food) he was an authority on the folk music, song and dance of many countries. He played many instruments and spoke many languages- indeed, it was said that there were none he could not just pick up and play or converse in. He was a fine singer, natural teacher and a lover of puns with a sometimes wicked sense of humour.

248 pgs

Pat collected traditional tunes- most notably in Shetland where he noted down tunes that had previously been passed on orally. He edited The Greig-Duncan Folk Song Collection, which was published in eight volumes after his death. He was a ‘Roving Ambassador’ for the Sing for Pleasure movement. Most of all he was an authority on and composer of English Country Dances.

It was his prodigious output of dances in all styles and levels of complexity which has led him to be labeled the Twentieth Century Dancing Master. He took his dances to Wales, Scotland, Holland and the U.S.A as well as all over England.

But Pat was also full of charm and enthusiasm and had a charisma which led to him being loved and well remembered by all who knew him. This book has attempted to bring together those memories and the varying strands of his life.
