This is a new front page for this site. Here you will find at the top of the links, below, a link to my original
Renaissance Dance page and all of its content. I have also provided links to most of the original sources below.
What is new?
I have added a link to a scanned version of my edition of Le Roy and Ballard's cittern book of 1565, which is not on
the original pages, and a revised link to the New York Public Library's copy of my transcription of the Il Papa manuscript,
which is now incorrect on the original pages which I can no longer edit due to changes in Verizon's policies.
I hope to move this content to a new location shorly. The pages on this site will likely remain here for some time, but
I will announce on this front page the new location of the updated pages.
