Tune of the Day: La Saint Lambert

from “Amusement militaire”

This jig is the fourth 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 might refer to a French or German town, like many of the other pieces from this collection. It is also possible, however, that it refers to the feast of Saint Lambert, which is celebrated every year on September 17.
