Tune of the Day: Le Retour du Rhim
from “Amusement militaire”
Today we propose the opening movement of Amusement militaire, 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 French title (where “Rhim” is probably a misspelling of “Rhin”, the Rhine river in modern-day Germany) translates as “The Return from the Rhine”.
