All of the dance music from that era (14th century) is contained in
the book _Medieval Instrumental Dances_ by Timothy McGee. There are
actually a bunch of dances named Saltarello. In the 15th century the
Saltarello becomes a musical tempo and a dance step instead of an
entire dance and musical form.
