The Dancing Master, Vol. 2, 1st Ed. (Young), 1710. The Fallibroome Collection, Bernardi Bentley, edited by Nicolas Broadbridge (EFDSS), 2010.

B1 5-8: These are relatively quick moves: a turn single in four counts moving directly into a circle halfway, also in just four counts.
A simple dance where the interesting phrasing of the music gives it character and drama, letting all the movements be emphatic and distinct.
