The saltarello was a lively, merry dance first mentioned in Naples during the 13th century. The music survives, but no early instructions for the actual dance are known. It was played in a fast triple meter and is named for its peculiar leaping step, after the Italian verb saltare ("to jump"). Here, we start with an anonymous 14th century theme, add in some 20th Century (Fox) elements and you have a delightful, if a bit rambunctious, medieval party. Listen to the MP3 recording by The Brethren Brass for a "real" and accurate performance.
