Frank Kidson – Old English Dances

Frank Kidson – Old English Dances

I recently digitised my personal copy of Frank Kidson's limited and very scarse "Old English Dances" (also called "Old English Country Dances"), published in a run of 80 copies, 1890, and offer it up freely for the benefit of the traditional music community. Please feel free to share, but please keep the original copyright details intact and do not republish on the web. This is a large file, around 55MB in size. You may download directly here (Right click, Save as.)
