SET DE VAUDREUIL 2ÈME PARTIE. AKA and see "Poor Robin's Maggot," "Would You have a Young Virgin." French-Canadian, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is quite old, appearing with country dance directions ("Longways for as many as will") in all four editions of London publisher John Young's Second Volume of the Dancing Master (1710-1728), Thomas D’Urfey’s Pills to Purge Melancholy (vol. 1, 132, 1719), and many London ballad operas, including The Generous Freemason (1731) and John Gay's The Beggar's Opera (1728, where it appears under the title "If the heart of a man is deprest with cares"). Thomas D'Urfey wrote his song "Would You Have a Young Virgin (of Fifteen Years" for the last act of his work Modern Prophets (1709) and directed it to be sung to the air "Poor Robin's Maggot"; thus, "Poor Robin" is the older name for the tune. In the Dancing Master, "Poor Robin's Maggot" is the alternate title while "Wou'd You have a Young Virgin" is the primary title. Jean Duval (2018) notes that, according to Labbé (1995) it was part of a French suite of the same period. The tune was adopted as part of the Lancer's Quadrilles, a figure called "La Native", a very popular set of dance figures that was popular throughout the English-speaking world in the first half of the 19th century, and which was also popular in French-speaking Canada.
