Tune of the Day: Branle des Chevaux

French dance tune

The “Branle des Chevaux” (“branle of the horses”) is a very old melody, dating back at least to the 16th century. A branle is a popular French dance, danced by couples in either a line or a circle. The term can be used to refer both to the music and to the characteristic step of the dance.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
