BONAPARTE'S GRAND MARCH [1]. AKA and see "Bonaparte's March (2)." Irish (?), March (4/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. O'Neill (1922) says: "In the heyday of Bonaparte's renown, early in the nineteenth century, many song, marches, hornpipes etc were named in his honor in Ireland. Most of the tunes, being traditional, retain their popularity. It is not claimed that "Bonaparte's Grand March" is an Irish composition. In fact we have no information concerning its history or origin, but there can be no question as to its circulation and popularity in Ireland in former times. Its rescue from the oblivion of faded manuscript to the publicity of the printed page may endow this spirited march with renewed vitality."
