Recommended Recordings:

Below are listed our “top 10” recommended dance CDs.  Since I couldn’t narrow them down that far, I cheated and listed our top 10 sources (many with two or three CDs).  Even so, I ended up with a dozen sources.  We hope you won’t mind the extras.  We have tried to include all the information we could to help people acquire these CDs.  Many are available from musicians and merchants in the SCA, others are available commercially.
