The Bray Pavane (Choreography ; Old measure)

The Bray Pavane

To Howells Delight.

Measure, modern SCA choreography, by M. Siôn, c2003.


Part 1: 4 pavane sets (SSD): 3 forward, 1 back;
Part 2: 2 side singles left, double forward, 2 side singles right, double back (makes a square), bransle apart and together, and honour;
2 side singles right, double forward, 2 side singles left, double back (another square), bransle apart and together, and honour.
Repeat all.

This dance may also be essayed as a coranto.
A variation that fits the music is in the box section, for the dancers to do the second pair of side singles using canto and rispondu. That is to say, one dancer does a single to the side, and is “answered” by the other dancer, then that again.
