This is their fifth album with WildGoose, the others being 'One Too Many', 'Drop the Reed' , 'Mr Kynaston's Famous Dance' Volume 1 (a collection of hitherto unpublished eighteenth-century English dance melodies) and John Playford's Secret Ball.

The Toddler CH 4
The Toddler
Dance reconstruction: Cécile LAYE
Music for dancing english country dances / Early dance and traditional english tunes and second tunes specially devised for the dance

Longways for as many as will” are the very heart of a country dance ball. Just as « mixers» they draw together people who do not know one another and might not otherwise dance together; but they are far more elaborate. Progressing up and down the set makes the dance interesting; as the dancers repeat the figures, they get over the initial difficulties and eventually take pleasure in recreating each figure with new neighbours. CHESTNUT and the Papa Richard musicians are happy to present this new selection of 17 tunes for dancing. Except for The Toddler and Black Almain, all are “longways duple or triple minor set”, most of them taken from different editions of the Dancing Master.
It was not easy to make a choice among so many enticing possibilities. What should be dropped? We tried to take into account newcomers to the repertoire as well as of experienced dancers familiar with the sequences. We picked up dances wich offer a contrast in atmosphere and rhythm presenting a representative sample of the different sequences used in progression dances. But above all we let ourselves be guided by the beauty and variety of the music, in carefully choosing the instruments which would best enhance the poetry unique to each dance.

Brass Tracks CM 110
Brass Tracks
All the tunes on this recording are favourites from the Dancing Masters, from Playford to the present day, chosen either because they sound terrific on trumpet, or fantastic on flugelhorn! Whilst we were working on the arrangements, I found myself gravitating towards the piano for some of the gentler tunes, whilst others got the benefit of Nick’s drum kit, just as they would at a live gig!

There are 16 tracks in total, and with help from our friends Kathryn and David Wright, we have tried to ensure that the music fits the dance well, and is played at a tempo which will suit the majority of dancers.
