The term danceries can be found in a copy of Playford's Dancing Master, an extensive collection of folk and popular tunes of the seventeenth century. The melodies themselves are a mixture of new and old. Where the old occurs, it has been adapted in mood and composition and is often interspersed with completely new material. The harmonies and rhythms bring a breath of the new into these themes and add to the drama of the set. Contents: Lull me beyond thee · Catching of Quails · My Lady's Rest · Quodling's Delight. (12:00)
