Voorkant
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - 148 pagina's
The carole was the principal social dance in France and England from c.1100 to c.1400 and was frequently mentioned in French and English medieval literature, but has been widely misunderstood by contributors in recent citations in dictionaries and reference books, both linguistic and musical. Dr Robert Mullally's groundbreaking study establishes all the characteristics of this dance: etymological, choreographical, lyrical, musical and iconographical.
