The English Dancing Master, first published by John Playford in 1651, is an anthology of top tunes from the 17th century. Used for country dancing, but also for ballad settings and artful concert pieces, these are melodies that set a-tapping the toes of Charles II, Henry Purcell and Samuel Pepys. - Mary Anne Ballard
