Mignotta (for two) nova (new)
a bassadanza (?) for two
Source: AW Smith (2 mms), reconstructed by Dafydd Cyhoeddwr
Music: To Celebrate a Prince (DHDS) (1 measure of intro)
Starting position: "a man and a woman in a file", but it also mentions "as many as desired, as long as the area is spacious"
Note: there's a comment in one of the manuscripts that make this seem like it's really a line (column) dance, rather than a couple dance
