Dances from the Terpsichore
"Dances from the Terpsichore" ( written in 1612) is the only secular work written by Praetorius. Terpsichore, named for the Greek goddess of music, consists of 312 different dances and is often played in winter festivals. All parts are compatible or can stand totally alone; this can be performed separately or in any combination. The titles in this work are: "Ballet, Bransle de la Torche, Courante, Pavane de Spaigne, Sarabande, Spagnoletta, and Volta."
