The recommended recording for this ...

The recommended recording for this dance is The Rakish Highlandman, which is a good steady pace.

The inspiration for this dance came whilst dancing Roselath Cross (two half Crown Triangles) at an Afternoon Tea Dance in the summer of 2012 amidst the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, when the question was asked, “What’s half a Crown?”. Of course the other answer is 2 shillings and sixpence and so, if the 6 bar movement in bars 27-32 (and again in bars 33-38) is given the name ‘a Shilling’, the alternative name for this dance is “2 Half Crowns and a Florin”!
