Dancing in Thaxted Church
We have a video to share.
Here’s a description from AMM man Ian Goldfinch (he’s the tall one dancing in number 2 in the video).
The Adelaide Morris Men were invited to perform the “Offertory Dance” as part of the church service during the 323rd Meeting of the Morris Ring on 6 June 2010. As an offering, the performance is our most exhausting dance, Staines Morris from Longborough. The haunting tune is played on recorder by Ian Mundy and reverberates superbly in the church. The total silence of the congregation made this an ethereal performance and was a highlight for me in over 30 years of dancing.
