Tune of the Day: La Oggersheim
from “Amusement de Mars”
This rondeau is the seventh and last 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 refers to the German municipality of Oggersheim, which has become the largest suburb of the city of Ludwigshafen, located on the Rhine river opposite Mannheim.
