Anglais (from the French word meaning "English") is a dance rhythm that spread over Europe during the last part of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It is preserved in the art music in the suite, and in folk music in different parts of Europe sometimes under local names such as engelska (Swedish, both in Sweden and Finland).
