Description
This is for the people that thought "Het Beleg van Nimwegen / The Siege of Nijmegen" was not descriptive enough.

Ok, this one definitely describes something. Something very specific. Like if you would have drum hits to portray "bombs bursting in air". Guess what this tune is about?

My guess
Gut level response:
Child-like experiencing of something uniquely new and delightful.

Child
You're being much too fancy. It's something pretty literal and concrete.

Not a clue
but it's a nice little bit of fluff.
Go ahead, tell me it's about guillotines or something equally nasty ;-)

Halloween on the mind?
It it were about guillotines it would have precipitously descending scales or something. Followed by a Bocephus Bouncing Ball effect for the rolling away of the head......

Next guess please.....

Familiar?
Seriously, is this familiar to you? It comes from a bundle of 17th century dutch tunes but they're all unfamiliar to me.

Anyway: yes, that descending octave is meant to portray a donkey. I drove that point home by adding a bunch of minor seconds that the 17th century author could never have imagined.

familiar
I'm not familiar with the music , but the words, hehehe, it's old Dutch :-)

Dutch
Right, but the question was "was is this music about", not "who speaks Dutch" :-)

Kids
A kid is a young goat. I don't know what the word for a young donkey is.

Het Eesel Schreit
I can hear the donkey braying now that it is mentioned. I was thinking along the lines of a fairground ride. Nice playing. Thanks.

This reminds me
of a child's fairground ride like the old ones that used to come round the streets pulled by a horse ( oh dear my age is showing here ) or a May dance around a maypole. Then again, it's perfect Morris Dance music; a lovely happy sound anyway Vic, regards M

Ah yes,
after reading these other comments I too can hear the Donkey....a very clever translation into music, M
