An arrangement (or fantasy, or somewhere in-between - not a strict transcription, with much free material) of Henri Ghys' own arrangement (first published sometime in the late 1860s/early 1870s) - found in the Ten Popular Pieces - of an anonymous Air attributed to Louis XIII but now attributed tentatively to Balthazar de Beaujoyeulx. (See also RISM 451503271.)
A work by the same name (possibly the same work) was published by the composer under his alias Streabbog, in versions for one pianist and for piano duet, in the same year (at least according to HMB; possibly earlier), with the opus number 115.
