SAUT DU LAPIN [2] (The Rabbit’s Leap). AKA and see "Chanterelle (La)," “Claqueuse (La),” “Pèteuse (2) (La),” “Reel de Lapin," "West Point Reel." French-Canadian, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Hart & Sandell (2001) identify the tune as from the repertoire of fiddler Lucien Mirandette (1924-1993), from St-Cutbert in the Lanaudière region. He was the uncle of multi-instrumentalist Jean-Claude Mirandette. The leaping rabbit is signified by plucked strings interspersed through the tune. However, the tune has other names as well, including "La Pèteuse" ('the farting women', another image attached to the pizzicato notes).
