SET AMÉRICAIN 2ÈME PARTIE (Set Americain, Second Part). AKA and see "Chamberlain Reel (The)," "Quadrille des Laurentides 5ème partie," "Reel de l'hôtelier," "Sets canadiens (1)." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBB. The tune was recorded by Montreal fiddler Isidore Soucy in October, 1925 (released y the Starr label in January, 1926). Soucy repeats the AABBB form for three times through the tune, but on the fourth repetition, after the 'A' part, he introduces a 'C' part--the first strain of the tune called "Reel de Tadoussac (1)"/Glise à Sherbrooke" which is then dropped until the very end of the tune where it is the finishing strain; Duval (2017) records the reputations as "ABABAB AC ABASB AC." However, this seems to me like a deliberate interjection of a strain foreign to the two-part tune, perhaps the inspiration of a moment. Soucy later re-recorded the tune in 1930 as the 5th figure of his “Quadrille des Laurentides 5ème partie” (Star 15737A). See notes under the alternate titles for more on this well-known reel.
