“Sir Wilfred Laurier Marche”

S: “The Master Collection of Dance Music for Violin: 299 Traditional Tunes of the British Isles & French Canada”, by Richard Carlin, tune #99, page 62 (simplified)
Mel Bay Publications, 1984 - MB93840
Listed in this collection under “French Canadian Music” ~ other transcriptions to follow, hopefully…

B/2nd part as just 16 bars…

While Richard Carlin’s transcription has the B/2nd part of this tune repeating, 2 x 16 bars, I personally don’t repeat it, just playing it as is, 16 bars, which could also be notated so:
