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
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?
A tune to go with Zelda
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 is included in this publication of tunes and tabs by Phillip Plard. He was at the festival dArs today.
There is a spirited performance of this by OccitaNiss on YouTube: https://youtu.be/gXWLmGR6Fvc
It is very popular in Catalonia and Occitania
"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).
