CORDON BLEU [1]. Irish, Polka (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. The tune, as "Cord and Blue", was entered into Book 1 of the large 1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim fiddler and uilleann piper Stephen Grier. Goodman appends this note to the tune in vol. 4 of his mid-19th century music manuscript collection: "The order of the “Cordon bleu” was founded by Louis XVIII, on the birth of the Duke of Bordeaux son of the Duke de Berri AD 1820.
