Tune of the Day: Wat zalmen op den Avond doen

by Jacob van Eyck

This tune and its accompanying variations are taken from Der Fluyten Lust-Hof (“The Flute's Pleasure Garden”), a collection of music for recorder by Jacob van Eyck, one of the best-known Dutch musicians of the 17th century. First published in 1644, it is the largest collection of music for a single wind instrument ever published by a single composer.

“Wat zal men op den Avond doen” is usually translated as “What shall we do in the evening”, and is believed to have its origins in a German song of the same title.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
