What this means

I enjoy performing Renaissance dance, both as a performer and as a musician. One of the ways of encouraging these activities is to make music available to instructors and musicians. These works are therefore my gift to you. I only ask that you treat them with respect and don't file off the attribution.

I have specifically reserved the right to include these works in an anthology, only because I want would be anthologist to contact me first to ensure that they get the latest version. (I would also ask for a copy of the anthology as the "fee" for the permission to use the works.) If you have any questions, please send me email at
