Program Notes

Royal Coronation Dances is the first sequel to the Fanfare Ode & Festival, both being setting of dance music originally arranged by Gervaise in the mid-16th century.

The first movement, Arrival of the Court, contains two different dances – an Almande from the Troisieme Livre de Danceries (1556) followed by a Bransle de Champaigne from the Sixième Livre de Dancerie(1555). The econd movement, Procession of the Queen, is the well-known Pavane d'Angleterre (Pavane of England) from the Sixième Livre. The third movement, Sporting Games, is a Bransle Gay, also from the Sixième Livre.
