[I don't know anything about Gaita, like how good or authentic they
are, or how usable their arrangements are for dance.  But it looks
most promising, with the sources listed, and the Gresley looks
exciting to me, if those are ones that we have dance reconstructions
for. -- DdL]

wonderful new album of 15th c. dance music for both dancing and
listening pleasure.

     See below for the track list. Note that the album contains newly
composed/arranged music for Gresley dances, along with [sic -- DdL]
