It’s actually a march, but I could only get the meter (2/4) I wanted by entering it as a polka.
Marche De ‘Quêteux’ Pomerleau
did I mention it’s a really FUN tune to play? It just drips with
Beggar Thomas Pomerleau’s March
The midi playback is a little fast; Q:around 108 works better for dancing.
Definitely a slow march, not a polka
Yes, the midi is very fast compared to the usual tempo we have heard. It is a slow, restrained march when played at most sessions we’ve attended.
Not to be confused with the crooked Marche de Thomas Pomerleau - another great tune.
The soundfile version is better than the score for once: It gives a flavour of what a music in the flesh can do!
‘Quêteux’ is undoubtedly a beggar here, but did you know that there is no French word for ‘busker’? ‘Busking’ is "faire la manche", in French, which translates as ”show or fill one’s sleave’. In other words, begging: not busking!
