More About This Textbook


First published in 1986, this is the first of two volumes devoted to the evolution of the Allemande, the Balletto, and the Tanz from 1540 to 1750. This first volume traces the history of the dances from the time of the Renaissance to the Baroque period as they moved across the face of Europe. Volume II supplements the history with an anthology of musical compositions.
