This book contains the famous triple-time (3/2) hornpipes of North West England with a selection of country dance tunes of the Baroque era.

The tunes come complete with chords, an introduction and notes on sources.

'Anyone who tries to explore the vast repertoire of English country dance music takes on a colossal task. There are thousands of tunes and dances lying hidden in libraries around the country, and it takes time and patience to search them out, even if the seeker is able to get to them in the first place. Any publication which makes this job easier must be welcomed, and here in this book we have a fine selection of music from the period when English country dancing was in its hey-day. It will provide a delightful and useful addition to any musician's stock of tunes and will help to open up an area previously the precious reserve of the archivist. This was the popular music of its time, and never has the moment been riper to give it a new airing.'

John Kirkpatrick
