Description
A happy, lively tune (and dance) from John Playford's English Dancing Master. This is not a stylized arrangement. I intended it to actually be used for dancing, and so it is straightforward, simple and has reverence chords at the beginning and end.

Instruments used:
Susato Soprano Wide-Bore Recorder
Susato Alto Wide-Bore Recorder
Aulos Tenor Recorder
Aulos Bass Recorder
My 17-inch viola (for the tenor part, and pitch-shifted down an octave so as to sound like a cello for the bass line.)
Sampled harpsichord sequenced in Finale

Enjoy!!

Huzzah!
Enjoyed this immensely. Love old English tunes. Didn't realise that the World Service intro music was from an old dance.

Great stuff. Wish i could play any one of those brilliant instruments.

Your old dances played on period instruments are one of the rare treats on MJ. Gotta go back for a second listen.

Brandon,
Well done! I was going to say it sounds so authentic, but then I read the details and realized, it is authentic, you played all the instruments for real (except the HC). Nice job.
