About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1986, these two volumes are devoted to the evolution of the Allemande, the Balletto, and the Tanz from 1540 to 1750. Volume 1 traces the history of the dances from the time of the Renaissance to the Baroque period as they moved across the face of Europe, whilst Volume 2 supplements the first by providing an anthology of musical compositions from Germany, France and the Low Countries, Italy, and England. All the compositions from one country or region are grouped together with full source attribution given at the end.
