A Choice Collection of Country Dances
As Printed and Sold by John and William Neal
in Christ Church Yard, Dublin, c. 1726
by Rich Jackson and George A. Fogg
Boston: Country Dance Society, Boston Centre, 1990
96 pages    CCCD-bk: $20.00 

59 dances originally published in Dublin in 1726, interpreted in the style first developed by Cecil Sharp in the early part of the twentieth century. The tune and a transcription of original instructions accompany each dance and illustrations of several pages of the original are included.  Basic knowledge of English country dance figures is assumed; for those needing glossary and performance details, use in conjunction with The Playford Ball. As a document, A Choice Collection has much in common with the James Alexander manuscript.
