The first Alman in F from Royal Consorts Set 9 by by William Lawes (1602-1645) is played by The Musicians In Ordinary string band led by Christopher Verrette, 1st vln. with Patricia Ahern, 2nd vln. Felix Deak and Laura Jones, violas da gamba and John Edwards, theorbo. 

We used Lawes' Royal Consort Set 9 as the dances for the Egerton children  for our performance of John Milton's masque Comus. The Alman or Allemande was the staple dance for Stuart court masques. This alman is labelled 'Aire' in some sources.
