These two courantesare well-known dances from the famous collection entitled Terpsichore by MichaelPraetorius. This piece is arranged for virtually any combination ofconventional wind instruments and percussion, with optional keyboard part.

They are attractivepieces and are sure to be popular at any concerts or end-of-semester events.They are fairly easy to play too. The flexible arrangement with alternativetranspositions makes them playable by all sorts of non-standard ensembles. Thekeyboard part enables you to use the piece as a solo or duet and trio for mixedinstruments.

This publicationconsists of a score showing the four-part ensemble, keyboard and percussionparts. The optional keyboard part is intended as a guide and when possible thekeyboard player should improvise around the part and chords shown. A pianosounds distinctly out of place in this music and a digital or acousticharpsichord sounds more authentic. Most electronic keyboards have a harpsichordoption. The score, keyboard part and set of fifteen 1-page parts pluspercussion come in a single PDF file.

The percussion instrumentsused are similar to those found in elementary school music rooms and usuallyinclude a hand-held drum, clave or small headless tambourine. Two players areusually required and the parts can be interpreted quite freely. Otherpercussion instruments may be added as desired. Dance music is intended to befun, and we hope that this arrangement brings you just that.
