QUADRILLE DES SEIGNEURS 5ÈME PARTIE (Quadrille of the Lords, 5th Part). French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. "Quadrille des seigneurs 5ème partie" is the final part of a five-part quadrille set. The tune is a Quebecois version of the American old-time reel "Mississippi Sawyer (1)," which is a version of the English melody "Downfall of Paris (The)," which was itself a Napoleonic-era interpretation of a French tune. However, LaMadeleine's version appears to be based on the American version of the tune.
