Vals à Lulu

This tune was found circulating around the UK nyckelharpa-playing community. The setting here is a three-part arrangement by the Rude Mechanicals (trio in Sussex, UK). (The melody and first harmony are in the 7 bracketed staves: the lower harmony is in the 7 subsequent single staves, but they are meant to be played together).

I’ve not been able to find out anything about its origin, or about the composer (Jacky Bouchard), or about any recorded versions that may be available. If any visitors to the Sessions site can offer relevant information, I’d be grateful.
