REEL DU GOGLU (Goblin's Reel). AKA and see “Captain Corbett's Hornpipe,” “Captain John's Hornpipe," "Duke of Brunswick's Hornpipe (The)," "Jones's Hornpipe (3)," "Mairs Hornpipe," "Malthouse Hornpipe (The)," "Quick's Hornpipe," "Stephenson's Monument.” French-Canadian, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The reel was recorded by Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard (1865-1947) in 1930 for Victor records, and again in 1936, albeit under the pseudonym 'Maxime Toupin'. The reel is a member of a large and widespread tune family of British and Irish tunes, mostly hornpipes, dating to the first half of the 19th century, perhaps the earliest being "Jones's Hornpipe (3)" from W. Blackman's Selection of the Most Favorite Hornpipes for the Violin (London, c. 1810-22). See note for "Captain John's Hornpipe" for more.
Goglu des prés is the French name for a bird known in English as a Bobolink, which has a white back and black underparts (like a tuxedo in reverse) and is related to blackbirds and orioles. It can be found in overgrown fields, tall grasslands, uncut pastures and similar habitats. According to Eric Lortie , it is also the nickname of a small dry biscuit.
