Pavan and Galliard can be programmed together. They are in the same key. Both are dances and offer a nice contrast of tempos. 

The Pavan (English spelling) is slow and stately. Its name comes from the word "pavano," which means peacock. The Galliard is noted for its short abrupt quater notes and lively tempo.
