REEL DE ST-PATRICE (St. Patrick's Day Reel). AKA and see "St. Patrick's Day." Irish, French-Canadian; Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "Reel de St-Patrice" is Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard's (1873-1947) rendition of the widespread Irish jig "St. Patrick's Day." Allard's second strain is irregular, having nine or ten measures instead of eight, and while it can be transcribed entirely in 6/8 time, I believe the two measures of 9/8 time (resulting in a nine-measure second strain) more accurately reflect the flow of the melody.
