This recording presents a nice selection of the dance music of 14th Century Italy, played on a variety of instruments. The liner notes are especially informative with regard to the corpus of surviving medieval dance music.
Although perhaps not as easily available outside of the US, this is the most dynamic & energetic performance of these pieces available. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the medieval dance repertory.
