Many dancers are familiar with Love's Triumph (DM 1710) as a 3-couple set dance from its reconstruction in Fallibroome I by Bernard Bentley. In her reconstruction of the dance as a triple minor, published in Fringe Benefits, Fried closely follows Walsh (1718). She adds some signature Fried touches, of course, particularly the lively stepping for the first couple at the end of the B2 section (she specifies skip change, though here we use a skipping step).
The lovely music was provided by three incomparable musicians: Karen Axelrod, keyboard; Daniel Beerbohm, clarinet; and Barbara Greenberg, violin. In addition, many good dancers in the set along the windows at the Lenox Assembly contributed to the general success of this demo, for which I am extremely grateful. The attention to spacing and lines, the polite look-back and the use of hands in Rights and Lefts, and the shape of the hands-4 all show a high level of dancing.
