Tune of the Day: Grimaldi's Whim

Traditional English dance tune

This tune is taken from Twenty Four Country Dances for the Year 1808, published in London by Goulding & Co.

Joseph Grimaldi (1778–1837) was the most famous English clown, who made the character of a clown a leading role in the theatre. He introduced pantomime to the theatre, and established the art of audience participation. At the time of Goulding's publication, Grimaldi was at the top of his career, and just past his greatest success in Harlequin and Mother Goose; or, The Golden Egg (1806).
