REEL D'HOCHELAGA. AKA and see: "Reel á Célestine à Jos." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABBA'CC. A version of the reel was earlier recorded by Montreal fiddler Isidore Soucy as "Gigue à Ti-Zoune." However, the reel circulated under a variety of titles. All however, are based on the Scottish reel "Lord MacDonald (4)." Fiddler A.J. Boulay recorded a version in 1924, issued as "Virginia Reel", and although "Lord MacDonald's" sometimes goes by the name of "Virginia Reel" in America (through early associated with the dance Virginia Reel), Boulay's version has much more in common with French-Canadian versions. See "Virginia Reel (1)" for a standard notation transcription of Boulay's version.

wikipedia:Hochelaga-Maisonneuve is the name of a neighborhood in Montréal, Québec, where Soucy lived. The name wikipedia:Hachelaga (village) is derived from the name of an Iroquois village that occupied the site when first visited by French explorers.
