Gregorian hymn tunes would give you some idea of what can you get to fit.  Certainly not this spaced-out extreme (music to die of the Black Death to) even if you had a three-ended melodeon:

Wow. Unfortunately, I can't get my ears round anything more complex than this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flSkvd5jSCo

If music be the food of love, get a melodeon and have an orgy.

Keep any left end very simple. Perhaps just drone the basses.

There are workshops by Andy Richards and Terry Man at Sidmouth this year on Playing for Early Dance.
The music is published at https://eglamore.wordpress.com/sidmouth-2017-music/.

I will not be in the UK through the end of this year but thought about Texas Renaissance Festival in November. Do you know if the tunes are available as ABC files?
