Dear Ian

I was wondering whether you could help me. We are a music production
company for film and television and I am doing some music research for a
film. The film is a true story of William Lanarch and will be shot in
New Zealand at Lanarch castle. It's a period film (obviously) set around
1890's and is about Lanarch's life and the first settlers to New
Zealand. I am sourcing some music for 'ballroom' dances in the castle
and was wondering what kind of dance styles/music and instrumentalists
would be most apt for that period. We're talking middle class here, posh
dresses etc. I have quite a collection but the style of music would very
much be in accordance with the kind of dances they would be doing then.

Any information would be most appreciated.

Kind Regards


Alison Wright
