Tune of the Day: Allegro ma non Presto by Chédeville

 from “Il pastor fido” Sonata No. 6

This is the closing movement of the sixth of the Il pastor fido sonatas, first published in 1737 and traditionally attributed to Antonio Vivaldi. The actual composer, Nicolas Chédeville, made a secret agreement with Jean-Noël Marchand to publish a collection of his own compositions as Vivaldi's Op. 13. Chédeville supplied the money and received the profits, all of which was recorded in a notarial act. This may have been an attempt to give his instrument, the musette, the endorsement of a great composer which it lacked.

Tune of the Day: Ai vist lo lop

 Traditional French folk song

“Ai vist lo lop” (“I saw the wolf”) is an old traditional Occitan folk song believed to date back to the 13th century. Occitan was historically the main language spoken in southern France, and it is sometimes still used, for the most part as a second language. Two versions of this song exist, one in the form of a 3/8-time bourrée and one in duple or quadruple meter. Both are still sung today, but the latter is more prevalent, and is also used as a nursery rhyme.

Tune of the Day: Aisling Gheal

 Traditional Irish air

According to Tomás Ó Canainn's autobiography A Lifetime of Notes (1996), this slow air was originally collected in the west Cork Gaeltacht (a primarily Irish-speaking region) from the singing of a woman in the late 19th century. Among the most notable recordings are those by singer Iarla Ó Lionáird and by tin whistle master Mary Bergin.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
