From Night Til Morn

In J. Treat’s MS (1779), Welch’s MS (1800, Sussex, England), Carr’s Elegant Extracts (1796) and in Andrew’s Fife Tutor (1808).

I’ve transcribed it as a reel, but it’s actually a march.

Observe that the first part is eight bars (repeated), but that the second part is twelve bars (repeated).

A popular tune at the Golden Guinea pub session in Redcliffe, Bristol (UK).

It’s also a favourite of Alan Whitbread’s, a concertina player from Alcester who frequents a session at the Fleece Inn, Bretforton. He plays it very steadily. Somehow I do not envisage it as a March. I’m inclined to want to step dance to it. Double step, (1,2, 3 hop). I think Alan leaves out the middle 4 bars of the ‘B’ music making it a normal 32 bar tune.
It goes very well as the following tune to Enrico. Has the same feel to it.

It was a popular military march in the 1800s, ender the name "Pauvre Madeleine"

I too have heard it played missing out the middle four bars of the "B" part, but I think doing this detracts from the character of the tune.
