We reconstructed it and used it as a performance piece for a program here on campus last winter.  I don't have the info in front of me, but I'll try to pull out the cheat sheets I made for it.  It's rather like a simplified form of Ballo del Fiore from what I remember...

Hail, fellow dancers!
How have various people reconstructed and performed the Candlestick bransle? The directions are so wonderfully vague that there is so much room for interpretation. I am curious how various people have put the written instructions into practice.
