Description:
The Rigadoon became popular during the reign of King Louis XIV of France in the 17th century. It had originated as a folkdance in southern provinces of France like Vivarais, Languedoc, Dauphiné, and Provence. The music is similar to another dance music called the bourrée, but it is rhythmically simpler. The dance remained popular in courts of France and England during the 1700s, but ultimately was replaced by the minuet.

This sprightly rigadoon by Henry Purcell is in the key of D major, and is largely a melody with accompaniment in the piano part. There are some simple ornamentations like staccato and mordents.
