Tune of the Day: Hornpipe in B-flat Major

by Henry Purcell, arranged for flute and piano

This piece is No. 8 of the Abdelazer Suite, written in 1695 by English Baroque composer Hanry Purcell. As a country dance, this hornpipe is also known under the title The Hole in the Wall; you might have heard its tune played in the 1996 A&E production Emma, starring Kate Beckinsale.

This Hornpipe in B-flat major should not be confused with the Rondeau in D minor from Abdelazer, which is also a Hornpipe.
