Tune of the Day: Le Turckaim

from “Amusement militaire”

This rondeau is the third 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 title probably refers to the German town of Bad Dürkheim, located about 20 km west of Mannheim (thanks to Fried for pointing this out!). A less likely possibility is that it might refer to the Alsatian town of Turckheim in modern-day north-eastern France, located next to Colmar about 20 km east of the Rhine river.
