    At the sources of traditional music
    This recording is a collection of pieces taken from the two most famous 16th and 17th century treatises on dancing. Published in 1588 in the form of a dialogue between a dancing master and his pupil, the Orchésographie by Jehan Tabouret, alias Thoinot Arbeau, is probably the most widely used practical treatise in the history of the dance. Intended more for couples of dancers (the Orchésographie dealt with groups of dancers), The English Dancing Master, compiled in 1651 from English ancestral country dances, was equally successful and went through no fewer than 18 printings in twenty-fours years! These two collections contain the most celebrated dances in the traditional repertoire.
