Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A lively dance, originating either in Auvergne or in Biscay.
- n. A musical composition in which the strict rhythm and cheerful character of such a dance are embodied. It is usually written in duple rhythm, the phrases being two measures long, beginning with the last half of the up-beat. It was much used as one member of the old-fashioned suite, and is still popular as a form of composition. It is allied to the gavot.
