Revision as of 21:08, 3 March 2012

This list is based on the database compiled for the Village Music Project. It represents, in February 2012, the majority of the significant manuscripts containing a useful number of dance tunes, on record as existing somewhere, but it is admittedly at this time weighted towards English manuscripts (even when the MS presently resides elsewhere). Some have been omitted as being based on uncertain information, or containing too few dance tunes. We hope to see more lines added. Feel free to add information, links, etc.
