Early Music @ 1 - Tuesday 28th April
In today's video Lizzie Gutteridge teaches you the steps to three Renaissance dances, perfect indoor exercise for this rainy day! The first piece is a pavan called "Belle qui tiens ma vie", the second a galliard called "La Traditore my fa morire" and the third piece is a bransle called "Branle des Pois". All three pieces are found in Arbeau's Orchesography, a famous collection of Renaissance dance melodies and accompanying dance steps. There are more videos on Lizzie's Youtube channel if you're inspired and would like to dance some more!
Lizzie has studied with some of the country’s leading Renaissance wind players at Cambridge and Dartington summer schools and at Guildhall. She plays a wide range of historical instruments, including shawms, bagpipes, recorders, curtals and fiddles. Lizzie performs up and down the country, in and out of historical costume, as a member of Blondel and The York Waits.
