Matt Larsen: Most SCA people are familiar with some English country
dances, which are at least as popular as Arbeau's dances. This is due in
part to the fact that there are organizations outside the SCA which have
done considerable research into these dances. It should be remembered,
however, that many of the dances which are commonly done by such groups
come from later editions than Playford's original publication, or from
other sources stretching all the way to the late eighteenth century. In
any case, the dances which are described by Playford in his 1651 edition
are relatively easy, and are mostly combinations of a fairly small vocabulary
of steps, so they are fairly easy to reconstruct. Along with Arbeau's Orchesography,
this is the most accessible of the original sources, and can serve as a
good starting point for aspiring dance masters. One disadvantage, the fact
that the music given with the dances is only a single line, has been offset
by the publication in recent years of a number of booklets of early Playford
dance tunes with full arrangements, as well as a number of recordings for
the dance master who doesn't have musicians at his or her command.
Lizbeth Langston: Note that step-unit descriptions in Playford are
very brief. He does not indicate whether to start movements on the L or
R foot and does not indicate how to do figures. This has led to several
reconstruction traditions and performance practices. Playford is a challenge
and fun to work with.

primarily a work concerning music, not dance. However, it is music for
dancing and includes some notes which are of interest.

Matt Larsen: This volume is similar to Terpsichore, but treats musical
theory more than specific musical pieces. Like the others, it is useful
mostly as supporting evidence for steps and dancing practices, rather than
as a source for specific choreographies.
