Rondeau from Abdelazer, Abdelazar, or The Moor’s Revenge is a 1676 play by Aphra Behn, an adaptation of the c. 1600 tragedy Lust’s Dominion.

The composer Henry Purcell wrote incidental music (Z 570) for a revival in the Summer of 1695, with movements:

1. Ouverture
2. Rondeau
3. Air
4. Air
5. Minuet
6. Air
7. Jig
8. Hornpipe
9. Air
10. A song entitled: “Lucinda Is Bewitching Fair”

The rondeau was used by Benjamin Britten as the theme for his set of variations The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra (1946). It was also used as the theme of the television series The First Churchills (1969), as the intro song for Intellivision video game Thunder Castle (1986), and may be heard as dancing music at the Netherfield ball in the 2005 production of Pride and Prejudice. The Britten arrangement is used as a recurrent motif in the 2012 film Moonrise Kingdom.

Henry Purcell  c. 10 September 1659 – 21 November 1695) was an English composer. Although incorporating Italian and French stylistic elements into his compositions, Purcell’s legacy was a uniquely English form of Baroque music. He is generally considered to be one of the greatest English composers; no other native-born English composer approached his fame until Edward Elgar, Ralph Vaughan Williams, William Walton and Benjamin Britten in the 20th century.
