Posted as a jig, but strictly speaking a "chapelloise". Composed by Philippe Plard - I think in the 1920s.

Also known as Aleman’s Marsj, La Chapelle-des-Bois and La Chapelloise.

Known as "Gigue" in Belgium.

Known as Xampanya in the Catalan region of Spain, where is played with repeats making it 32 bars.

Alternative setting in A Min to put the tune in a range to suit whistle/flute players.

Another alternative setting in Bmin fitting even better to the Irish pipes /whistle/ flute world
Great Tune!

Setting 5

Added chords to setting #2, nice piece

For a minute, I thought somebody had transcribed the theme to "Legend of Zelda", and made it into a jig… I’m not sure whether I would have been thrilled or horrified had that have been the case.

He’s not that old….

Hi, Mix. Philippe Plard is much younger than I am, so Zelda wasn’t composed in the 1920s… :D The Zelda sicilian circle mixer dance that goes with the tune, is a chapeloise. Here the composer plays his tune for the dancers on his diatonic accordeon:

A tune to go with Zelda

Anyone have a tune that could be played with this tune?

You could try this - but there are quite a few Chapeloise about, or you could try "Jump At The Sun" seams to go ok . .

Zelda, X:7

"Cercle circassien" I learned from a french accordeon player, with a nice C part.

Re: Zelda. Possible chords alternative.

I don’t usually worry about chords in posted tunes, I just play what sounds right to me.
However, as I’m just now needing to agree on some for a ‘band setting’ of Zelda , these sound more ‘correct’ to my ear than those previously posted.
Maybe of some use to others.
However no such a thing as the ‘correct’ chords — ("discuss" — or maybe best not).
