QUADRILLE FRANCO-AMÉRICAIN FIG. 6. French-Canadian, Quadrille (cut and 6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BBCC'DE. The last figure in Montreal fiddler J.O. LaMadeleine's "Quadrille franco-américain." It starts with "Yankee Doodle" and later throws in "Old MacDonald (had a Farm)." Researcher Jean Duval notes the second part of La Madeleine's piece is an instrumental version of the song "En roulette ma boule", played in 2/4 time signature rather than 6/8.

J.O.'s son Albert is credited with playing piano on the recording, although they must not have had much time to practice. Albert misses the change to 6/8 time in the middle of the medley, and goes on in duple time for several measures before realizing his mistake and conforms. J.O. LaMadeleine, meanwhile, does his best to bridge the rhythms until Albert catches on.
