Subject: The 29th of May
From: Ringer

Any Playford dancers out there who can explain how Part-3 (the one beginning "First couple cross outside the twos...") should be danced? My instructions are somewhat ambiguous/incomprehensible.
In anticipation, thanks.

You may find Robert M. Keller's site interesting:

The Dancing Master, 1651-1728: An Illustrated Compendium

It's a compendium of all the material from the "Dancing Master" series.  I don't know whether the codes he uses for moves and so on are easy to understand or not, as I'm not a dancer.

Hey, it's my birthday too. You might know the tune as one that is used for the hymn "All Things Bright and Beautiful".

Hmmm... Thanks for the link, Malcolm. The dance there bears some resemblance to the dance I know. It isn't made clear there that it is 3 separate parts. My instructions (from heaven knows where) say repeat part-1 ad lib, then part-2 ad lib, then part-3 ad lib, but I find it's much more fun to dance it part-1, part-2, part-3, part-1, part-2, etc (or it would be if I could only work out part-3: part-1, part-2, part-1, part-2, etc is how we do it now, and is quite fun). I'll work on the part-3 from your link - I'm a great believer in "the more fun the better", and if purity of dance tradition falls by the wayside, so be it.

I believe, for those interested, though I can't remember where I came across the info, that 29th May marks Restoration Day, celebrating the restoration of the Monarchy after Cromwell's "commonwealth". All England, on that original day, went on an almighty bender in relief that Cromwell's puritannical reign was over.

Eighty-two or eighty-three? For Pete Seeger, I mean?

Anybody remember a children's book called the 35th of May?

Just checked The American Heritage Dictionary. According to that source, Peter Seeger is 83. Born 1919.

There was also the note: "Known as "Pete" (though few know him as "pink sneakers" ;-)

Restoration of the British Monarchy, Charles II, Roundheads and Cavaliers and all that.

It's also a tune known as 'Royal Oak' being the jollier tune for 'All things bright and Beautiful'.
