Product Description

Review

'Dr Payne is to be congratulated on bringing together in one volume such a wide range of evidence, and for doing so in ways that will both inform and provoke discussion among scholars and practitioners alike...there is much that is excellent and thought-provoking in this book.' Early Music '... this book by a musicologist who knows all the sources and can both play and dance will be invaluable to those involved in both sides of the artificial divide... Irrespective of the dance material, the book is useful for musicians who encounter dance-based music in other contexts.' Early Music Review 'The wealth of documentary evidence, in particular the musical examples and their analysis, will be of great interest to both early musicians and dance scholars alike.' The Dancing Times 'The dance reconstructions and critical edition of the manuscript sources are excellent...' Renaissance Quarterly 'This will be an invaluable resource to teachers and choreographers... The scholarly discussion which Payne provides will serve to warn against the over-interpretation of historical dance reconstructions, and, I would hope, will encourage a more critical engagement with the portayal of dance from the past...' The Consort 'This is the only publication to include reliable transcriptions of all seven of the featured manuscript sources, with a full supporting bibliographical apparatus and commentary...[Ian Payne] has much to say that is of genuine interest...' Historical Dance

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I like this book because it is well written, and easy to understand for somebody with an understanding of dance and music but not a professional. It goes into good detail on background of the Alman and other Measures in England, and links them forward as well into early country dance. It has a section on the music, a section on the steps, and on the choreography. This book could be used to reconstruct Alman's from the beginning if you wanted to, or it gives excellent information for improving dancing and performance.
