N:Appears as the (optional) Finale to the Coquette Set of quadrilles:
N:”In some places, the Finale is used at the end of every cotillion,
N:and in others, only occasionally. The figures in Finales, as well as
N:the music, should be varied; that is, not the same changes each time.
N:The music, as a general thing, should be lively and animating, and of
N:a different style from the rest of the set; such as Reels, Gallope,
N:Hornpipes, and sometimes Songs.”
