Minuets for Dancing Book and CD
By Charles Cyril Hendrickson and Frances C. Hendrickson. ISBN 1-877984-18-3. Softcover with 24 pages.
Eighteenth-century minuets from colonial America; includes music, detailed instructions for dancing the eighteenth-century minuet, and a CD with music for step practice and each dance. The music comes from two colonial American sources: the manuscript collection of minuets made by John Ormsby, a dancing master active in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland in the 1750’s, and a group of printed English minuet collections from about the same time that belonged to Thomas Jefferson.
