CLOG DU COURONNEMENT (Coronation Clog). AKA and see "Buck From the Mountain (The)," "Clog du petit mousse," "Hanover Hornpipe," "McElligott's Fancy," "Minstrel's Fancy," "Pioneer Clog (The)." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune, with an Irish provenance and normally played as a hornpipe, was recorded as "Clog du couronnement" set as a reel for Starr Records in Montreal in 1937 by fiddler Albert Allard, backed by guitarist Tony Ouellette. A few years earlier the pair had partnered with accordion player Tommy Duchesne (1909-1986, born in Val-Jalbert on Lac-Saint-Jean) to form Les Chevaliers De Folklore, but all continued to record on their own as well. However, the melody had earlier been recorded in Montreal by fiddler René Houlé (Victor 263795, 1931), played in the usual dotted hornpipe rhythm.
Allard's title honors the coronation of George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon as King and Queen of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth and as Emperor and Empress of India, which took place at Westminster Abbey, London, on 12 May 1937.
