Minuets for Dancing
by Charles Cyril Hendrickson and Frances C. Hendrickson
Sandy Hook, CT: The Hendrickson Group, 2002
ISBN: 1-877984-18-3
24 page Book and CD set (Digital keyboard and sampled sound) MFD-set: $15.00 



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 1750s, and a group of printed English minuet collections from about the same time that belonged to Thomas Jefferson.        For this publication, each of the dances was interpreted and reconstructed using period sources. Several pages are devoted to the technique of 18th-century deportment, figures (or "geography") of the minuet, honors for both the woman and the man, the English minuet step, a complete bibliography of period sources, and there is a first-hand account of the terror induced by a gentleman's first performance of the minuet at a public ball. Chords are indicated on the music and the figures have been matched with each piece of music.


Dances: Corelli's Minuet, Countess of Eglington's Minuet, The Dutchess of Ancaster's Minuet, The Dutchess of Richmond's Minuet, Lord Cathcart's Minuet, A Minuet, A Minuet by Captain Read, A Minuet by S. Philpot, A Minuet by Reverd. Mr. Bacon, Miss Webster's Minuet, and Mrs. Hedges, Her Minuet
