New book exploring the music of the Winder family of Wyresdale near Lancaster. Over 600 northern tunes from 1780s to 1840s. Jigs, reels, hornpipes, minuets, quadrilles etc.
With extensive introductory notes about the original manuscripts, Georgian entertainment, dancing masters etc. and tune by tune annotations. And nice pictures!
