If we practice the version of Rostiboli out of Joy and Jealousy and then
the dance taught at Lilies matches the Lilies music and DOESN'T have the
saltarellos and movimentos at the end, then the musicians will (once again)
confuse the dancers. If we practice the music provided and the dancers are
expecting to saltarello and we start again with the beginning, the same
problem occurs. Are the steps as they will be done at the ball available?

then the chorus?
Or are you affirming that there are 3 verses total?
http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/lod/vol2/hearts_ease.html (article with the 1st
http://www.shipbrook.com/jeff/playford/40.html (2nd edition) shows that the
"verse" part goes through 2 times for each verse, the action and "that
again" and that's the way I've always played it. Phaedra's music shows 4
times through the "verse music" (a repeat written out and also a repeat
(and for those who haven't seen the originals before, the music repeats are
down in the dance instructions)
I'll get the music for scotland and dashing white sergeants up as soon as I
can (and maybe Conrad can make a pdf file for us)
