      Bryn doesn't know fickle ladies but Lisa, the very
      bored & unemployed reference librarian found this:

      Music for Fickle Ladies as a PDF sheet music and MIDI
      audio file can be found here
      Paul Butler music website
      http://crab.rutgers.edu/~pbutler/music.html

      Another MP3 audio version can be found here:
      http://ieee.uwaterloo.ca/praetzel/mp3-cd/

      The author of Fickle Ladies is given here- the person
      could write to Bridge to find out how to contact her
      or someone who knows the dance if they have questions:


      http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/~praetzel/music/cecilia.html
      Fickle Ladies
      Tune: Bransle de Champagne X
      Invented in the Barony of the Bridge
      by Rosalys Ashmund.

      Sources:
      Playford, The English Dancing Master.
      Millar, Elizabethan Country Dances.

      Here is the Barony of the Bridge Dance Guild page (I
      just think it's interesting and might be something you
      guys want to put together with your "favorite" dances
      - would be a nice addition to Aneleda's A+S page)
      http://dance.eclecsia.org/repertoire.html

      Instructions for Fickle Ladies are included in this
      dance manual (download PDF)on page 50
      http://downloads.cynnabar.org/terp_viii_book.pdf

      Enjoy,
      Bryn Millar

            They were onto something in A Knight's Tale. Golden Years is great
            for

            most pavans, we especially like the Earl of Salisbury.
            If you're into bootscooting, the Bear Dance works well to Devil Went
            Down to Georgia.
            The Queen's Allemande works well with YMCA. You do the YMCA hand
            movements in the 4 doubles part ending with smacking your partner's
            hand
            to make both sides of the "A".
            Boney M's Rasputin is good for the Korobuska, nice Russian theme.
            The theme song from the Smurfs is almost the same as the tune for
            Goddesses. Did you know there is a techno remix of the Smurf's theme?

            It's a bit hard to dance to in places though.

            As you may have figured out, I have been following this discussion on the sca dance list. Someone mentioned that any ECD can de done to Little Bunny

              As you may have figured out, I have been following this discussion on
              the sca dance list. Someone mentioned that any ECD can de done
              to "Little Bunny Foo-foo," though I don't know if I am convinced.
              Also Henry of Maldon keeps piping up with comments that make me want
              to say something disparaging but of course I have not done so. I
              just bite my tongue and let his pompousness pass...
