Tune of the Day: Le Weynolsheim
from “Amusement de Bellone”
This piece is the fifth 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.
There is a small town in Germany called Weinolsheim, and it is located right next to another small town called Dolgesheim. Since Amusement de Bellone also has a movement titled “Le Dolgelsheim”, we're inclined to think that this is more than just a coincidence.
