Extra Information This popular dance was thought to have been composed by Louis XIII, King of France (1601-1643) at one time, but Beaujoyeulx is considered a more likely candidate now. It has been arranged by numerous other composers, including Henri Ghys and Fritz Kreisler.

If Beaujoyeulx is the composer of this, then it comes from the Balet comique de la Royne, which is his only extant work. According to Grove Music, "It was the result of collaboration by various artists connected with the court: the story was by Agrippa d'Aubigny, the text by La Chesnaye, the king's almoner, the music by Lambert de Beaulieu and Jacques Salmon and the scenery by Jacques Patin. Beaujoyeux was the stage manager and choreographer."
