PATIENCE QUADRILLE. English, Quadrille Set. The "Patience Quadrille" was the work of musician and dancing master Charles Louis Napoléon d'Albert (1809-1886), who adapted the music composed by Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900) for the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operetta Patience. The quadrille set was published in 1881. D'Albert also made dance adaptations from several other Gilbert and Sullivan works, including Trail by Jury, The Sorcerer, The Pirates of Penzance and Iolanthe.
