Tune of the Day: Les Fifres

by Jean-François Dandrieu, arranged for flute and bass instrument

This piece is taken from the first book of Pièces de Clavecin (“Harpsichord Pieces”) by French Baroque composer, harpsichordist and organist Jean-François Dandrieu. It is made up of three parts in rondeau form, so its structure can be written as AABACA. Fifre is the French word for ‛fife’, but the piece has also appeared in print with the English title “The Fifers”.

Thanks to Brandon for suggesting this piece!
