Abdelazer (also spelled 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 (not the same as the 18th century rondo)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),[1] 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.

Arranged for standard brass quintet and transposed from the original D minor into C minor.
