Autumn's Allemande (Eijkhout, Victor)
|Work Title||Autumn's Allemande|
Autumn is the daughter of a lady-in-waiting. She is too young to be let into the great hall when the grown-ups are dancing, but when she hears the music, she hides behind a curtain and does her steps in silence.
The Allemande is an old dance form. It is described as to be danced "in a grave and ceremonious manner." The performer of this piece is instructed not to pay attention to this.
(This is a movement in the Courtly Suite.)
