Apologies for being late updating this information… ‘c’

CDs: The Set - One / Two / Three

Sadly these three recordings, with booklets that give the dance description for each set, lack tune lists. I had plans to remedy that with close listening, along with at least half a dozen other recordings like this, but I haven’t yet - numerous distractions good & bad, including currently being computerless… 🙁 I accept some of the fault, in part procrastinating over building a new PC…

The Set - One - OSSCD 126
The Set - Two - OSSCD 127
The Set - Three - OSSCD 128
