These volumes (Z. 14625 and Z. 14640) from János Bali are special publications. Apart from being collections of 16th-century pieces playable at concerts or any other kind of musical occasion, they also serve as basic material for today s increasingly popular Renaissance dance halls, or balls: the pieces they contain are grouped according to the various types of dance, and supplemented by a description of the most important dance steps, and formulas of ornamentation providing patterns and ideas for use in performance.
An ensemble of different-sized recorders/strings is one of the most typical instrumental combinations of the Renaissance, and can successfully evoke the authenticsound and performance practice of the period.
