Homage A Edmond Parizeau

A French-Canadian reel by accordionist Marcel Messervier in honour of fiddler Edmond Parizeau

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.

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.


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?
