According to Laurie Hart…

this Hommage, included in her book, Danse ce Soir, was arranged by Messervier but not written by him. Laurie claims that the tune was in Pariso’s repertoire as “Reel du Commonwealth”. Pariso (or Pariseau) was living in Sainte-Foy at the time of Danse ce Soir’s publication in 2001.

This tune goes well following a tune called the Klezmer:

I love this tune a lot and can;t get enough of playing it over and over again!

The midi file does this tune no justice! When played by an excellent player (such as Dan above^) this tune is extremely beautiful!! I must find a recording of it…

OF COURSE i inherently recognised this tune when i *first* heard it played, now i realise that it’s part of a Wood and Cutting set!! no wonder i knew it!!!

^^what Wood and Cutting set is this? I must learn it if it’s got this corker of a tune in it!

Many thanks for saying i’m good!! 🙂

It’s Galope de la Malbaie/Homage a Edmond Parizeau - most lush set ever.

I LOVE WOOD AND CUTTING!!!!

This is GORGEOUS set after Old French (which is also on thesession) - full credit goes to mr Dan Foster for it!!

french canadians ftw

hell yeah mehitabel!!

english kids playing french canadian ftw

Hommage a Edmond Pariso

Looks like Pariso takes “so”, and not “zeau”.

Hommage a Edmond Pariso.

OK, now that I got the tune down, I got to learn about the origin of this version I play. I do not have the book danse ce soir. I am curious to know if the version in there has four parts like the two links above. Anyone knows if Messervier arranged this tune with the four parts like La Bottine or Cutting and Wood play. This is very pretty but all versions on Utube only have 2 parts. Is it just a matter of changing key?

Re: Hommage à Edmond Parizeau

Thanks to NfldWhistler for, 2 years ago, posting the video of our big sit-in band with Pascal playing this tune at the Old Labor Hall in Barre, Vermont in 2012. Pascal didn’t really know it when we started, but easily learned it during the course of the dance. I think it is also called the “Commonwealth Reel”. Thanks, also, to Martin Racine for turning “Viva El West Side” into “Dedicado a Jos” for pairing with this tune (as originally done by La Bottine Souriante). Apparently, Jos Bouchard was well known for ‘borrowing’ tunes from other cultures on his tours of the world and making them his own.

Re: Hommage à Edmond Parizeau

Hard to believe that Pascal Gemmer did not know that tune. I thought he knew all of the Quebecois repertoire!🎻😊

“Reel Beatrice” is another tune which is attributed to Jos Bouchard but apparently is based on or actually is an Italian traditional tune but adapted and reinterpreted by Jos Bouchard and played in his highly individualistic style. Whatever. Its a cool tune now in the standard Quebecois repertoire. Also, I guess, in the modern Irish repertoire. Search for the youtube videos of both Liz Carroll and Sharon Shannon.

Sorry for taking this topic in another direction.
