Pride and Prejudice Vol II
In the earliest stages of planning it became clear that little had been done to interpret the dances from the “Apted” Collection to their original tunes.
Referring to the original book, Reg Battle set about the task of interpretation, bearing in mind the dialogue between 17th to 19th Century dance techniques and current expectations. This will undoubtedly give a new look to some of the more familiar dances from this Collection. We have also added our favourite “Gems” - those dances that stand out in the Country Dance repertoire, but these days don’t often get an outing!
This is a Multi-Media CD - so if you have a computer you can see and print the dance notations of Vol I and Vol II. Also included are the original notations and interesting ‘tit-bits’, such as how the dance was performed in the TV or film production. The ‘Download’ version also includes these notations as ‘pdf’ files.

Auretti’s Dutch Skipper (Thompson 1757)
The Barley Mow (Thompson 1779)
Mr Beveridge’s Maggot (Dancing Master 1695)
