BADIN LE. AKA and see "Marie Louise engelsk," "Plumb Pudding." The melody first appears in Rutherford's Choice Collection of Sixty of the Most Celebrated Country Dances (London, 1750). Rutherford's tune may have been modeled after a French country dance called "La Badine" that appears in early 18th century Continental publications, although the English and French tunes that are the vehicles for the dance are different. However, Fr. John Quinn finds a Continental tune that is cognate is "Marie Louise engelsk", a 6/8 time setting of the same melody as printed by Rutherford that appears in a music manuscript collection from the Danish brothers Christian Frederik Bast and Paul Danchel Bast. The brothers were vorn in Horslunde on Vestolland in the 1740's.
