Tune of the Day: La Ilversheim
from “Amusement de Mars”
This musette is the second movement of Amusement de Mars, 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 title probably refers to the German town of Ilvesheim, located near the Rhine river between Mannheim and Heidelberg.
