One other thing that I found is that apparently Michael Praetorius's music
for of this branle has the B-part repeated. As in, take Arbeau's B-part
(which has one repeat) and play it twice (which equals a total of four time
through the written notes). At least this is from a music CD with Torches
Branle attributed to Praetorius. I rather like dancing to the longer B-part
