Lilies Ball - Music changes

This is a webpage of the dance steps for the ball
Lilies 15 dances
This is the booklet that Tsire made up of the dance steps
Lilies 15 Dance Booklet (MS Word)

Following are the dances I would propose using different music for at Lilies and the reasons. There are a few pdf files (mostly off of the SCA dance page) and some Word documents ('cause I can't make pdf files)


I like the key of G better
Word document

Candlestick Branle

Repeat the end measures 4 times total


It was taught at Lilies as only 2 repeats of the first part


Put a repeat in at the end of the 4th measure. The "first part" repeats and the "second part" repeats.

Rostiboli Goioso

The version in the music book is missing the salterellos and movimentos at the end. I double checked with the dance steps and the dancers will be expecting to do them :-)
Word document

Dashing White Sergeant

Music wasn't included. Melody only
Word document


Music in booklet repeats last bars, should not repeat
pdf (Adobe Acrobat)

Maanschaft Pavan

Just 'cause I made up a prettier copy of this arrangement for Lilies last year
Word document

Heralds in Love

No new music, just a note that we'll be playing the 2nd ((A,B) x3) version.

Rufty Tufty

Again, I like it better in G
Word document

Heart's Ease

The first repeat in the booklet version is incorrect, the music as written there has the repeat written out. This is a corrected version (or you can just mark out the first repeat)
Word document


Version in the booklet is (I think) for a later version of the dance. This version matches the dance as it will be taught (and is done most everywhere)
pdf (Adobe Acrobat)

Horses Branle

Do NOT repeat the last section. The repeat is written out in the music.

Road to the Isles

Music wasn't included. Melody is the top line. I got this from a MIDI file and thought it was a neat arrangement (could be horrible in reality, who knows)
