Notes:
There is also a dance to the same music called Contrapasso Nuovo, for three couples.
A version of this dance can also be found in Nobilta di Dame, where it is referred to as "Contrapasso to be danced in a circle". In the later version Caroso calls for the dance to be done by several couples in a circle, though the couples do not appear to interact with each other. He also makes many revisions to the steps, with references to how the original dance was "imperfect".
