    These selections of English Country Dances from the publications of the English music publisher John Playford are recorded and played so well as to relegate any criticism to spoiled grapes. Perhaps a musicologist might carp on some fine points, but then again probably not - musicologists actually enjoy a good tune, too. There is a nice couple pages of notes by Jack Ashworth on the historical background of the music, and a further short page by David Douglass on how he envisioned the 'nature' of several of the pieces. There is also a French translation following the English notes. Seven instruments are mixed higgledy-piggledy as the performers deem best - a copy of a 1652 Amati Violin, and copies of a Theorbo, a Cittern, a 16-string harp, an Italian Double Harp, an Irish Harp, and a Guitar. For the curious Douglass plays the violin only, but offers playing consanguineous with his name.
    Among the choices cut 15 - Long Cold Nights - seems almost New Age in its evocation of the heavens: one might be in Big Sur looking up at the stars. The many other pieces come in divers moods and tempi, with great care given to which instruments are employed. It's difficult to imagine anyone disliking such engaging tunes, such joy in their making. The recording is of course digital so it helps to have a system capable of taming the inevitable string stridencies, but that said - if you like music from this period, or are curious, this CD offers a wonderful selection.

  • Malcolm Arnold English Dances - Sir Adrian Boult conducts the LPO

    8:12

    The 2nd Set of Malcolm Arnold's 'English Dances' was uploaded here a while ago and now here's the 1st Set. It comes from the same splendid 1954 LP of English Music that Boult recorded with the London Philharmonic, as reissued by 'Pristine Audio' on PASC 193.

    Here's the link to Set 2 ...

  • Malcolm Arnold: English Dances No.1 - Op. 27

    2:46

    Sir Malcolm Henry Arnold, CBE -1921-2006) an English composer of great variety and renown. His output of works features music in many genres, including a cycle of nine symphonies, numerous concertos, concert works, chamber music, choral music and music for brass band and wind band. He wrote extensively for the theatre, with five ballets specially commissioned by the Royal Ballet, as well as two operas and a musical. He also produced scores for more than a hundred films, among these The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), for which he won an Oscar.
    English Dances, Opp. 27 and 33, are two sets of light music pieces, composed for orchestra 1950 and 1951 . Each set consists of four dances inspired by, although not based upon, country folk tunes and dances. Each movement is denoted by the tempo marking, as the individual movements are untitled.
    On this video:- English Dance No. 1 - Andantino - Op. 27.
    The music is set to lovely English countryside scenes, shot at the peak of summer. The tone is decidedly rural, so much so that this track appears on a new C.D. celebrating the long running BBC T.V. series 'Countryfile' with some of the best English music to represent the programme.
    Enjoy the video and.....
    Please do try to value our lovely countryside, peace on earth and harmony in Mother Nature.

  • The Broadside Band ‘Portsmouth’ English Country Dances from Playford’s Dancing Master 1651 1703

    3:04

    The Broadside Band ‘Portsmouth’ English Country Dances from Playford’s Dancing Master 1651-1703 Portsmouth is a traditional English folk dance tune, similar to an Irish or Scottish hornpipe melody. It is sometimes referred to as the Portsmouth Hornpipe.
    Portsmouth appeared in the 11th edition of John Playford's The Dancing Master in 1701. It is also one of the three arrangements on which English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams based his Sea Songs, originally arranged for military band in 1923 as the second movement of his English Folk Song Suite,[3] and subsequently re-arranged for full orchestra in 1942 by the composer.[4] In the 1950s it was used as the signature tune for BBC television series Billy Bunter. Jeremy Barlow formed The Broadside Band in 1979 to perform popular and dance music from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Since then the group has made many recordings of this repertoire and has toured throughout Europe. Other CDs of Renaissance dance music include Danses populaires françaises du XVI siècle (Harmonia Mundi), English Country Dances and Songs and Dances. I used to go to see the Broadside Band perform upstairs at the Market Porter Public House, Southwark, London back in the 1980’s, and if you didn’t get there early, then I doubt you could get in, the place was packed

  • The Broadside Band Childgrove English Country Dances Playfords Dancing Master 1651 1703

    4:10

    The Broadside Band CHILDGROVE English Country Dances from Playford’s Dancing Master 1651-1703 (Child Grove). English (originally), American; Air, March or Country Dance Tune (2/2 time). USA; New England, Northwest. D Dorian or D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune, still popular at English country- and American contra-dances, dates to 1701 when it appeared in the 11th edition of London publisher John Playford's Dancing Master. It was retained in the long-running series of Dancing Master editions through the 18th and final edition of 1728. Other early printings were by Walsh in the Compleat Country Dancing Master (London, editions of 1718 and 1747).

    There is a small village called Childgrove near Chichester, but so far there is no known collection with the title of Playford's country dance and tune. Researcher Graham Christian [1] suggests the title may have been Child's Grove, perhaps named for Sir Josiah Child (c. 1630-1699), a wealthy merchant who became Governor of the East India Company, and a very powerful man indeed. Child purchased the estate of Wanstead House in Essex in 1673, and Christian speculates the title may in some way be connected with either the estate or its gardens and grounds.
    Jeremy Barlow formed The Broadside Band in 1979 to perform popular and dance music from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Since then the group has made many recordings of this repertoire and has toured throughout Europe. Other CDs of Renaissance dance music include Danses populaires françaises du XVI siècle (Harmonia Mundi), English Country Dances and Songs and Dances. I used to go to see the Broadside Band perform upstairs at the Market Porter Public House, Southwark, London back in the 1980’s, and if you didn’t get there early, then I doubt you could get in, the place was packed

  • STEAM! playing English Country Dances

    17:58

    Excerpts from four English Country Dances, 8 Dec 2019, Albuquerque NM. Band: STEAM! ( Caller: Noralyn Parsons.

    Details of dances:
    Terpsicourante (0-2:54) a Gary Roodman dance (4-couple set dance) from 2000, published in A Number of Calculated Figures. The music is adapted from “Courante” from Terpsichore by Michael Praetorius, apparently approx 1583.

    Atossa’s Gift (3:00-7:50) The dance (longways duple minor) choreographed by Scott Higgs(2017), was commissioned by Kit French (of Albuquerque) to honor the 3 Atossa’s in his life - his grandmother, his mother, and his sister. The tune Love for Three Generations was written in 2017 for the dance by Clara Byom, also of Albuquerque (More on the dance at:

    Love and a Bottle (7:55-10:00) (3-couple set dance) was published in Playford's The Dancing Master Vol 2, 1710. Named for George Farqhuar’s play, Love and a Bottle, which came out in 1698; it was his first comedy.

    Jack’s Maggot (12:27 - end) (longways duple minor) has a date of 1702, from Playford’s Dancing Master Vol 1.

  • Beethoven - Country Dances For Orchestra - Contratanze 1-3

    1:56

    At the end of the 17th century, English country dances were taken up by French dancers; hybrid choreographies exist from this period using the steps from French court dance in English dances.

    The French called these dances contra-dance or contredanse. As time progressed, English country dances were spread and reinterpreted throughout the Western world, and eventually the French form of the name came to be associated with the American folk dances, especially in New England (this Gallicized name change may have followed a contemporary misbelief that the form was originally French)

    Ludwig van Beethoven (baptized 17 December 1770 - 26 March 1827) was a German composer and pianist. The crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential composers of all time.

    Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven moved to Vienna in his early 20s, studying with Joseph Haydn and quickly gaining a reputation as a virtuoso pianist.

    His hearing began to deteriorate in the late 1790s, yet he continued to compose, conduct, and perform, even after becoming completely deaf.

    These Old English ballads and dance tunes, performed on soprano, alto, and tenor recorders, were recorded February 3, 2014 during an informal rehearsal. The trios are from two anthologies arranged by Gerald Burakoff and Willy Strickland: Musicke from Olde England and Piper's Fancy, published by Sweet Pipes Inc.

    The performers are Dorothea Barth, soprano recorder; Bertram Barth, alto recorder; Christine Love, tenor recorder. Bertram Barth created the nature slide show to accompany these tunes.
