REEL DES SPORTS. French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB. Soucy researcher Jean Duval find the first strain of "Reel des sports" similar to the second strain of the Irish reel "Bright May Morning (A)," printed by Francis O'Neill in Dance Music of Ireland (1907, No. 501)[1].
