About 'Branle des Chevaux (Horseplay)'

"Branle des Chevaux" (or "Horse's Brawl") is a traditional dance tune from the Renaissance period. It was documented by Thoinot Arbeau in his dance manual "Orch├ęsographie," published in 1589. The "Branle des Chevaux" is a specific type of branle, a dance form popular in the 16th and 17th centuries, characterized by its side-to-side movement; the term "branle" actually means "sway" in Old French. The name "Branle des Chevaux" (Horse's Brawl) is thought to reflect the spirited and energetic nature of the dance, reminiscent of lively, prancing horses.
