Discussion: possible new tune
# Posted on January 4th 2007 by mhuppert
https://thesession.org/discussions/12209

Can anybody name this tune? If it’s new to the Session, feel free to take the credit. I heard and recorded this at O’Malleys in Canberra. To tell you the truth, there are at least a dozen more I’d like to identify, but I"ll put more effort into it myself first.

# Posted on January 4th 2007 by mhuppert

Might it be a barndance? The melody’s vaguely familiar…

# Posted on January 5th 2007 by what?!!?

Very familiar ~ let’s see if one of us can find the name? :-/

Yeah, it works well as a barndance / schottische / German, of the ‘single’ variety, 16 measures…but as was true with many of those and highland flings, they often get played as reels…

Sorry ‘mhuppert’ but I can’t give you a name for it right now. It is familiar and came to me easily but that doesn’t necessarily mean I have an information laying around here. I’ll come back to it later and if I can find a name for it I’ll add the name here… Submitting it is a good way to get the attention of others. I understand a lot of schottisches are played in Australia as a form in good standing with the bush bands and their dances… I have a few acquaintances in that area and will post this on to some other friends who might have a name or further context and history for it. We have a well informed Australian base on the site here. Even if we don’t find a name, it is a fun tune, good dance music. ;-)

The rest of those present ~

Sorry, not forgetting the rest of our large well informed and experienced membership here ~ North America, Europe and beyond… I said this tune was familiar, very much so, but I’ve never played any ‘Bush Music’ per se… I’ll see if I can connect the dots and figure out where I might have picked it up…

I types “dAFA dfed” into the Advanced search…

And find "Tomorrow Morning" the notes are the same, but the timing is diff. (Sorry if I talk strangely, I’m crazy)

William Durette’s Clog?

The Band "Moving Cloud" recorded a very similar French Canadian tune as "William Durette’s Clog." The second part is slightly different though.

Gan Ainm Barndance

Really nice tune.

32 bars!!! ~ “Clog de William Durette” / “William Durette’s Clog” /

"Clog de Champagne" / "Champagne Clog"

evidently some folks play it as ‘mhuppert’ recorded it. Now it is more familiar as I’ve been listening around and playing with this. Thanks to slainte for the head’s up.

I really wish I could submit this over again, as the 32 bar tune it is, but it works both ways if you want. That transcription will follow…

Slainte, aftrer I’ve added a take on this here, how about a transcription of the "Moving Cloud" recording. That is one I don’t have…

“Clog de William Durette” / “William Durette’s Clog”

This is transcribed from a 78 recording of the playing of Alfred Montmarquette (1871-1944) on single row melodeon, Adélard Saint-Jean on Jaw Harp & Édouard Bolduc on piano, 1930, released 1931…
Recording Company: Fonds de la Compo Company Ltd. (1918-1950)
My suspicion is that the melodeon and/or the recording was sharp, G sounding as if A, and while it goes nicely in that key as well, the transcription that follows is in G. I’m also sure I’ve heard it played in C Major as well. As I’d promised someone, here it is swung and then given as a ‘straight’ notation:

Alfred Montmarquette ~ musician & composer 1871 - 1944

The Virtual Gramophone: Alfred Montmarquette ~
& links to numerous recordings by this artist, MP3’s, etc…
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/gramophone/m2-1041-e.html

"Alfred Montmarquette was born in New York on April 6, 1871. A self-taught man, he quickly learned and mastered the folksong repertoire while still an adolescent. Having moved to Montréal in the early 1920s, he was more than 50 years old when Conrad Gauthier’s Veillées du bon vieux temps made him known to city audiences.

With the bones player Adélard Saint-Jean and the pianist Henri Langlois, Montmarquette formed a trio that recorded first on the Brunswick label (1928) under the names of Trio du Vieux-Québec, Trio Sainte-Catherine, Vieux Quatuor québécois and Vagabonds de Montréal. Between 1928 and 1932, Alfred Montmarquette recorded more than 110 pieces for the Starr record company, including "Marche Montmarquette", "Marche Cécilia", "Valse Clarisse", "Valleyfield Reel", "Valse des nations" and "Marche de Trois-Rivières". Alfred Montmarquette also recorded with Ovila Légaré, Eugène Daigneault and Mary Bolduc, the singer who was also his neighbour. Like most traditional musicians of his era, he could not make a living from his music. Sickness, age and alcoholism condemned him to poverty, and he died in an asylum for the elderly in Montréal on May 24, 1944."

"The troupe, Veillées canadiennes regularly broadcasted from Montréal radio stations CKAC and CFCF."

“Clog de Champagne” / “Champagne Clog”

Philippe Bruneau, an important French-Canadian melodeon player, while having learned the tune from the 78 rpm recording of Alfred Montmarquette, the previous transcription and mention, plays and calls the tune "Clog de Champagne" / "Champagne Clog"…

A ~ Bb ~ C & D Major ~ all those keys

The tune is that good that it has found it’s way throught several keys and ways…

Damnt ‘t’s are acting up atgain… GRRRRRt!!!

D Major transcriptions above, not G ~ apologies

Damn, not just the t’s, which are noW (they’re acting up again) ~ it’s the bubbly too. So I’m floating tonight. Those Alfred Montmarquette transcriptions above should have read D Major, Philippe Bruneau plays it in D. To make amends, here it is in A Major:

I owe another couple of takes on this, G, which may be the actual single row box Montmarquette was playing, and for Dow’s dad who has now taken up a single row, damn, I forgot to ask what key. Anyway, it is sweet in G. There is also as I remember it, and there are some differences, though doing all this is probably clouding that a bit. I love the Montmarquette recording of it, really nice, and I have to say I prefer it to "Moving Cloud", but theirs is lively too… ;-)

“Clog de William Durette” / “William Durette’s Clog” ~ G Major

While the recording I have is sounding closest to A Major, my suspicion is as given previously, having never stumbled across an actual A Major single-row box, that he played a G box. I have given it as D above, which was the starting key I picked up from mhuppert’s discussion, so, here it finally is, the Montmarquette’s transcription, all the way down in lovely G, and damn is it nice here:

But still not as I remember it… (I’ll be back!)

Just a post-it, the G transcription is dedicated to Dow’s da ~ who now has in his possession a G single row box…

Close to Champagne, but right on to William Durette’s

Several Canadian groups have recorded Clog de Champagne as the first tune in the set called Montmarquetterie, followed by Alexandrine March (by Andrew Rankine) and Clog de Pariseau. This posted version is similar, but different, from versions that I have by Raynald Ouellet and Gaston Nolet of that clog. I have this version in Dorothy Hogan’s "La Grande Ronde" transcribed from Montmarquette under the Clog de William Durette title. Her book refers to Carmelle Begin for Phillippe Bruneau’s version as Clog de Champagne.

2 separate but equal tunes

I forgot to mention that in our AQLF book entitled "Alfred Montmarquette", transcriptions of both clogs are included (Champagne and William Durette).

Tell us more!

Reiterating what I said in my e-mail…

If you want to hear a rendition of "Clog de Champagne" as we know it, browse over to the SPDTQ website and the podorythm logo will have the tune playing in the background. Carmen Guerand keeps the site up to date.
And browse to the AQLF website to find out a lot more about Quebecois music and dance, including how to obtain Francine Cataford’s transcription book of Montmarquette tunes.
