And how about - gives pleasure to time well?

Yes, Thank you Campbell, most informative.
However I am quite surprised that so few (any?) mentioned The Belle
of Bon Accord as it meets all Loretta's criteria so well. It is
certainly a long time favourite hereabouts and it's announcement as
next dance always is greeted with an eager murmur from the assembled
populace.
I strongly recommend anyone who has not tried it to give it a go,
especially if you have the correct music as I have not heard any band
play that particular set of tunes without giving pleasure.

Cheers, Ron :)
