QUADRILLE BOUCHARD (quatrième partie). AKA and see "Reel Yamaska." French-Canadian, Reel. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. This melody is the 4th part of Bouchard's Bluebird version (recorded in Montreal in 1938), but the 5th part of his 1975 version. In the 1975 version the form is AABB (Joyal). A close version of the reel was printed in J.A. Boucher's Le Répertoire du Violoneux[1] (1933, No. 94, p. 47) under the title "Reel Yamaska" (Yamaska is an area in the Pierre-De Saurel Regional County Municipality, in the Montérégie region of Quebec, approx. mid-way between Montreal and Trois-Rivières).
