Album Notes
This is the first of a planned series of albums of dance music from the 18th and 19th century called "The Dance Master's Companion". This project is supported by the not-for-profit company RegencyDances.org where you can find the figures of the dances together with animations and illustrations of the steps.

These tunes have been designed for authentic period dancing: taken from original manuscripts, recorded on period instruments, and test-danced by experienced dancers.

The cotillion was the most popular fashionable dance of the late 18th century in England. Giovanni Gallini was born in Florence and made his career as a dancer, choreographer and impresario in London. The dances in this album are taken from his work "Critical Observations on the Art of Dancing" published in 1770. Giovanni Gallini scandalized parts of the fashionable world by marrying Lady Elizabeth Peregrine Bertie daughter of the Duke of Abingdon but was accepted by the family and became Sir John Gallini.
