FOUR O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING. AKA and see "Irish Quadrille." American, Quadrille or Schottishe (?). USA, southwestern Pa. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard is curiously silent about this tune, which sounds like a 19th century composition, perhaps (as the alternate title specifies) a part of a quadrille set.

Source for notated version: James Taylor (fifer and fiddler from Wetzel County, W.Va. and Greene County, Pa., 1930's) and John Taylor (fiddler from Greene County, Pa., 1930's) [Bayard]. Bayard does not say if the Taylors were related.

Printed sources: Bayard (Dance to the Fiddle), 1981; No. 188A-B, p. 144.
