The Favourite Quadrille

The jig-like finale of The New Lancers’ Quadrille named "La Favorite", by Charles D’Albert, as found in Brainard’s Violinist’s Companion.

Re: The Favourite Quadrille

Indeed, Nigel: that applies to the first two parts notated above, but what do you make of the third part? It may be a bolt-on from somewhere else and sounds familiar to me - I think from hearing it in English sessions - but I can’t put a name to it.
