Medieval and Renaissance Dances for Recorders, Dancers, and Hand Drums
by Isabel McNeill Carley
Book Description: Processionals, Carols, Farandoles, Branles, and Pavanes by the ancient ones that prove those folks in ruffles had a good time. So will your students. These lively period pieces will enhance school programs, complement language arts or European history units, and provide music for Renaissance Arts Fairs or Madrigal Dinners. The pieces are set for soprano recorders with optional tenor parts, hand drums, triangles or finger cymbals. Dances are easy to learn line, circle, and partner dances with clear instructions and diagrams. Pieces can be performed without dancers too. You will value the Hand Drum Tutor—4 pages of exercises and “tunes” to help develop the two-tone hand drum technique used in the arrangements. Tunes are from England, France, Hungary, Germany, and Spain. The four carols have Latin, Middle English, and modern English lyrics—perfect for expanding the scope of holiday programs. A student book containing all recorder parts in large print is included.
