STEP STATELY [1]. AKA and see "Jack Pudding." English, Country Dance Tune (6/8 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune called "Step Stately [1]" takes its name from the English country dance Step Stately, for which English folklorist and collector wikipedia:Cecil Sharp substituted the original tune for the dance, employing the melody called "Merry Andrew" or "Jack Pudding" instead. The dance was first printed by London publisher John Playford in his English Dancing Master (1651) as “Step Stately,” but used a different melody (for which see "Step Stately (2)." Playford also printed the tune Sharp employed for "Step Stately (1)," albeit under the title "Jack Pudding," with a different set of dance steps.
