Tune of the Day: La Fête de Village

Traditional French tune

The earliest appearance of this tune in print is in the 4th volume of Samuel, Ann and Peter Thompson's Compleat Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances (London, 1780). The name of the tune may have been taken from a stage work called La Fête du Village by the famous French composer François-Joseph Gossec, which was performed at the Paris Opera in 1778 and was then imported to London.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
