• I ilke this sort of music and I think this composition and performance handles it very well and makes it enjoyable.  I would have liked though a note giving the name and composers for the originals.

    I've posted something from the same era on this site here.

    • Hi Jon,

      Thanks for listening and commenting. I'm glad you asked for the sources. Most of these dances can be found in the Flemish archives. "La Romance" consists of two dances: La Romance d' Estelle and La Colère du Père Duchesne . They can be found in the  collection of P.J. Vanpelt (Maastricht, 1786), in the archives of the Church of Our Lady (O.-L.-Vrouwekerk) at Tongeren. Most of these collections are of course in handwriting and/or copper engraving print. Some of them have been reedited in facsimile in the years 2000-2010. The arrangement is fully mine, because there's only a melody line in the original.

      This recording is live by my chamber orchestra (1998) De Kleine Compagnie.

      Hope this will do,


      • Thanks for tne reference.  I maintain a library of old music books, mostly digitized copires available on liine, and if I find any of those texts I'll post their source.
