QUADRILLE FRANCO-AMÉRICAIN FIG. 2. AKA - "Franco-American Quadrille, Fig. 2." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. "Quadrille franco-américain fig. 2" continues Montreal fiddler biography:J.O. LaMadeleine's quadrille set of his interpretation of American tunes with this, a 'crooked' (irregular) version of the Old-Time staple "Mississippi Sawyer (1)," albeit with the parts reversed and the second strain truncated. Ironically, "Mississippi Sawyer" is itself a version of the British reel "Downfall of Paris (The)," which is based on the 18th century French anthem "Ça Ira."
