Cotillion les Marionettes
COTILLON DE/LES MARIONETTES. English, Country Dance (2/4 time). England, Northumberland. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Not the same tune as Vickers' "Cotillon Marionettes." This melody appears to be a French country dance that was included by Vickers in his ms. along with other French cotillions from an unknown source. Michael Raven includes it in his section of "Tunes printed before 1730", although his source is unknown,
