ARTHUR LECLERC'S WALTZ. AKA - "Valse Arthur LeClerc." AKA and see "Valse Hochelaga." French-Canadian, Waltz (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. From the playing of Keith Corrigan (b. 1933, Valcartier, Qué.). "Valse Hochelaga" was recorded by accordion player Donat Lafleur (1892-1973) for Columbia Records in 1928. Lafleur lived in the wikipedia:Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighborhood of Montréal, Québec, as did fiddler Isidore Soucy, with whom Lafleur sometimes recorded. The name wikipedia:Hachelaga (village) is derived from the name of an Iroquois village that occupied the site when first visited by French explorers.
