BELLE CATHERINE À ÉDOUARD RICHARD, LA. AKA - "Reel Anticonich," "Reel Antigonish." French-Canadian, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAA'BBB'. This appears to be a Gaspésian version of Belle Catherine (3) (La). Guy Bouchard notes in his book Airs Tordus (2nd ed.) that this tune is incorrectly labeled as "Reel Anticonich" on M. Richard's album. There is, in fact, another tune of the name but it does not appear on M. Richard's recording. Despite the mistake, the title "Reel Anticonich" or its variant "Reel Antigonish" for the tune has entered the tradition. The time has been variously barred in mostly duple time, or a mixture of triple and duple time (see Olivier Demers' transcription).
