Tune of the Day: Les Houzarts

from “Amusement de Bellone”

This lively piece is the closing 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. The houzarts of the title is probably an old form of the French houzards, which translates as “hussars”, a class of light cavalry that was very common in 17th-century European armies.
