What are rang tangs?
Rang-tang right = allemande right once along sets, gents cross over.

Rang-tang left = allemande left once along sets, gents cross over.

Mac McKeever has it as written by Ridge Kennedy. It came to me as "by unknown", via to C. A. Gray and Diane Silver, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbeDG5jmKvE .

Also: Chet keeps on insisting that there's an amorphous 24 beats of rangtanging, during which a minor set can do any number of iterations. Not German Enough For Me!
