Badin (Le)." English, Country Dance Tune (2/4 time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody also appears in John Johnson’s 200 Favourite Country Dances, vol. 8 (London, 1758). Fr. John Quinn finds a cognate Continental tune in "Marie Louise engelsk", a 6/8 time setting of the same melody as that printed by the Thompsons which appears in a music manuscript collection from the Danish brothers Christian Frederik Bast and Paul Danchel Bast. The brothers were vorn in Horslunde on Vestolland in the 1740's.
