Le Carillon D'Oxfort or Christ-Church Bells in Oxon ~ Feuillet is a European Contredanse. It was published by Feuillet in 1706 in Recüeil de Contredanses (Feuillet). It was interpreted by Pat Shaw (website) in about 1964 and published in Six Simple Country Dances. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The minor set lasts 24 bars.
Feuillet describes his dances with diagrams rather than words and I am not prepared to reproduce them here. If you wish to examine the originals look here on page 49.
The animation plays at 120 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance is slowed down so people can learn the moves more readily. Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color, however the border of each dancer indicates what role they currently play so the border color may change each time through the minor set.
The dance contains the following figures: hand turn (allemande), circle, cast, lead (and probably others).
If you find what you believe to be a mistake in this animation, please leave a comment on youtube explaining what you believe to be wrong. If I agree with you I shall do my best to fix it.
