Allemande

Allemande (Almand, Almayne, Almain, etc.) (Fr.). The name of 2 distinct types of comp., both probably of Ger. origin.
1. Dance, usually in 4/4, but sometimes in duple time, much used by 17th- and earlier 18th-cent. composers as the first movement of the suite, or the first after a prelude. It is serious in character but not heavy, and of moderate speed: it is in simple binary form.

2. Peasant dance still in use in parts of Germany and Switzerland. It is in triple time, and of waltz-like character. Occasionally composers have called a comp. of this type a Deutscher Tanz (plural Deutsche Tänze), or simply Deutsch (plural Deutsche).
