The English Dancing Master has been most useful to our theater company in staging authentic ancient dance. The single line of melody in standard music notation is easy for musicians to use. The dance instructions are clear and make it easy for a small group to learn the dance. The dances are beautiful, and there is a wide variety of styles and partnering.

This is it, the oldest original source for English Country dances, complete with sheet music, diagrams, and instructions. Of course, it's all public domain material available for free on the web, but it's handy to be able to carry the book around with you, and it's even small enough to hold in one hand while you're dancing.

To my fellow reader I give my heartly welcome. John Playford is one of the most know dance teacher all times. So this book is a must to everyone who is starting or has danced historical dances. Music is no problem if you know how to play violin or recorder, because there are notes for every dance. If you don't know how to play that isn't a problem at all. In the internet you can find freely copyable music to almost every dance. English country dances are easy and fun to dance. And you have to use your head in these dances that is very different to modern discodancing. So buy the book, start to dance it keeps dementia away. Happy dancing.

If you love 1651 English Country Dances and are interested in learning them on your own or teaching them to other people, this is THE book to have. It shows a facsimile page of Upon a Summers Day right beside the modern musical notation and modern print of the dance reconstruction. Careful attention needs to be paid to the instructions. Using the melody line helps with the reconstruction of the dances.
Another great use of the book is making your own arrangements to the melody lines included for each of the dances.
I found this a valuable resource to information I have already gathered about ECD.
