Les Poules Huppees

I was just glancing through the archives and I saw that the 3/8 bourree,"Les Poules Huppees" had been posted.Here’s a 4/4 version that I picked up in Belgium.

This tune is called La Sansonette and it is a classic scottische from central France. Original tonality is g-minor.

“La Sansonette” Schottische

Sadly, I’ve also heard this schottische butchered at some rediculous undanceable tempos…

On YouTube ~

C: Daniel Forge

This composition is attributed to Daniel Forge from France. Unfortunately I can find no recording attributed to the composer or any other information, which would be welcome…

With this e minor transcription, D fingering played on a C instrument, woodwind, would give d minor. But, there’s nothing wrong with it in e minor on a D woodwind…

Set Ideas

This tune sandwiches in very effectively between Ziri Piri and MacPherson’s Strut for a set with real attitude!
