One of the best-known guides to courtly dance of the Renaissance was the "Nobilta di Dame" (1600), an Italian dance manual offering a rich repertory of aristocratic social dance, including the music and fully described choreography for 49 dances. This great classic by Fabrito Caroso, dancing master to a number of princely Italian families, was first published in 1600. It is presented here in an expertly translated English edition by Julia Sutton, with music transcribed and edited by F. Marian Walker.
