... This one-off project was conceived in 2001 by violinist Mark Emerson (b. 15 August 1958, Ruislip, Middlesex, England) to mark the 350th anniversary of John Playford’s The English Dancing Master , a work comprising music and instructions for English country dances.

Both Jeffrey and Stewart subscribed to an introspectionism that was embedded in much philosophical procedure during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Thus in the Leviathan ( 1651 ) Thomas Hobbes writes of the counsel ‘read thyself’ that it tells us this: ‘whosoever looketh into himself, and considereth what he doth, when he does think, opine, reason, hope, fear &c . and upon what grounds; he shall thereby read and know, what are the thoughts and...
