about

Guillô is a traditional carol from Provence in which Christian revellers drive Satan out with their celebrations. The Pease and Candelstick Branles come from Thoinot Arbeau's 'Orchesography', a 16th century guide to the dancing of the court and countryside. Instructions for a small repeated section in the Candlestick Branle read: 'During these four steps the dancer looks here and there to espy the partner of his choice'
