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 Hornpipe from "Abdelazer" was so popular that it was published as "Hole in the Wall", and then issued as a single in the 18th century! This lovely dance tune was renamed in the sheet music with the appealing title of "St Martin’s Lane". It later passed into the country dancing tradition via the Playford Dancing Master, still with the dreadful title of "Hole in the Wall", under which name it’s played today. It’s been used in many period dramas, including "Becoming Jane" a film about Jane Austen’s early life. This version is for wind quintet.
