Playford English Country Dance Tunes for Two

John Playford published “The English Dancing Master” in 1651. This monumental work featured the music for the tunes as well as instructions for performing the dances.

This curated collection contains 37 of the tunes from the Playford book, arranged for two players. The melodies are on the top stave, and the harmony/backup is on the bottom stave. You could perform just the melody as a solo, if you are all by yourself. We have also included chords, just in case you have a guitar or ukulele handy.

Each Tunes for Two collection consists of individual spiral-bound duet books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath so you can play each tune by yourself or with others. Duo arrangements of the tunes in this collection, in the same keys, are available for violins, violas, cellos, basses, mandolins, soprano recorders, and alto recorders.
