A Book of Paine's Quadrilles
A comprehensive introduction by Ellis Rogers offers comments on the interpretation of the quadrille. Remarks on the interpretation of the music are by Meryl Thomson of Green Ginger.
This CD of PDF images contains thirteen Sets of Quadrilles, composed in the early nineteenth century by J. Paine. Over 300 hundred pages offer: first, the dances in their original format; the music, transcribed for legibility, indicates the repeat sequences; the original dance instructions for each quadrille are given, in considerably abbreviated form, below the music.
The same thirteen sets of quadrilles are then given in a fuller version, the music fully interpreted and ready to play. Each quadrille also has its own dance instructions, provided in an extended and therefore more comprehensible form.
