Tune of the Day: The Ephemeral Emperor

Traditional English tune

This English reel first appeared in W.M. Causac's Annual Collection of Twenty Four Favorite Country Dances for 1809. Given the date of publication of the volume, the tune's title could be a hopeful reference to Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French from 1804 to 1814.
