DAPHNE QUADRILLES, LA. English, Jig (6/8 time). A Major (Sumner): G Major (Gibbons). Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Source Joshua Gibbons (1778-1871) was a papermaker and musician from the village of Tealby, near Market Rasen, in the Lincolnshire Wolds. The tune, presumably meant to accompany a figure of the then fairly new quadrille dance, was set in the key of 'G' major in Gibbons' mss. Dance figures for a cotillon called "La Daphne" are to be found in an 1827 instructor printed in New York called Le Maitre de Danse...Art of Dancing Cotillons...Second Edition by E.H. Conway. Whether there is any relation between the figures and Gibbons' tune is unknown. The tune was also entered (in setting for the flute) in an anonymous music manuscript dated 1826-1859, entitled Melodist: A Collection of music in two volumes (No. 110, p. 59[1]), probably from the state of Maine.
