NOVÉLLÉ HOLÉNDOISE, LA. AKA - "Chain Cotillion." G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody, presumably originating in the Netherlands by way of France, was published in London by Randall & Abell in Sixteen Cotillons or French Dances (1768). The tune also appears in the 1788 music manuscript collection of John and William Pitt Turner, of Norwich, Connecticut (wherein "Novéllé Holéndoise" is an alternate title to "Cotillion"). See also note for "Chain Cotillion" for more.
