Dances from Terpsichore

Compiled by Michael Praetorius
Arranged by Carrie Lane Gruselle
Grade: 2.5

This fantastic arrangement of dances from the 17th century Renaissance period includes three movements, beginning with La Bourée, a lively and spirited dance. The beautiful Pavane alternates between major and minor tonalities. The final movement, Spagnoletta and Courante, is in a lilting 6/8 time. Tenor drum is optional, but highly effective and approachable. A delightful journey into the past and an excellent way to develop independence between sections. (4:15)
