The choreographies described in sixteenth-and seventeenth-century treatises serve to reconstruct the dances performed in the European courts of the period. La Spagna, the Spagnoletta, Canario and the Folía were forms that embodied the epitome of Spanish dance during this period. In this recording, a pair of dancers recreates these dances accompanied by an ensemble of minstrels, keyboard and plucked string instruments.
