QUADRILLE NATIONAL 4EME PARTIE. French-Canadian, Quadrille (cut and 2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Soucy researcher Jean Duval recognizes this quadrille part as a version of "Bielbie's Hornpipe," a popular 19th-century schottische (also played as a hornpipe and polka) that is fairly widespread with numerous variants (see, for example "Curlew Hills Polka (The)" and "Original Schottische Polka (The)." Soucy himself recorded another, different, version of the tune with accordion player Donat Lafluer in 1936 as "Reel Acadien," and Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard also recorded his take at the ancestral melody in "Reel des montagnes"[1].
