Tune of the Day: Le Dolgelsheim
from “Amusement de Bellone”
This piece is the fourth movement of Amusement de Bellone, a suite for solo instrument (“musette, vielle, flute and oboe” according to the original edition) and continuo by the French Baroque composer Nicolas Chédeville.
We could not find any reputable information on the meaning of the title. However: there is a small town in Germany called Dolgesheim, and it is located right next to another small town called Weinolsheim. Since the next movement in Amusement de Bellone is titled “Le Weynolsheim”, we're inclined to think that this is more than just a coincidence.
