GARÇON VOLAGE QUADRILLE , LA. AKA and see "Cats in the Village," "Harvest Time (1)," "Nine Pins (1)," "Quadrille 2nd Set – La Poule." English, Quadrille (6/8 time). G Major ('A' and 'B' parts) & E Minor ('C' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCC. This quadrille part can be found in the music manuscript collections of the (Thomas) Hardy family (Dorset, 19th century), R. Hughes (Whitechurch, Shropshire, c. 1823), W.H. Giles (Bampton, Oxfordshire, 1839), and is similar to part of an untitled quadrille in the c. 1837-1840 MS of Shropshire musician John Moore (Ashman, 1991). The first strain is nearly the same as that of "Dingle Regatta." The tune appears under the "Garçon Volage (Le)" title in the Royal Keyed Bugle Tutor, published by Z.T. Purday in London in 1830.
