CARNIVAL ANGLOIS, LA. AKA and see "Gold Ring (5) (The)." French, Country Dance (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune under the "Carnival Anglois" title is from the contradance book (tunes with dance instructions) of Robert Daubat (who styled himself Robert d'Aubat de Saint-Flour), born in Saint-Flour, Cantal, France, in 1714, dying in Gent, Belgium, in 1782. However, the melody had earlier been published in London as "Gold Ring (5) (The)" in John Johnson's Choice Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances, vol. 5 (1750, p. 45).

According to Belgian fiddler Luc De Cat, at the time of the publication of Daubat's collection (1757), Daubat was a dancing master in Gent and taught at several schools and theaters. He also was the leader of a choir and was a violin player in a theater. Mr. De Cat identifies a list of subscribers of the original publication, numbering 132 individuals, of the higher level of society and the nobility, but also including musicians and dance-masters (including the ballet-master from the Italian opera in London). Many of the tunes are written with parts for various instruments, and include a numbered bass.
