Tune of the Day: John of Paris

Traditional English jig and march tune

Jean de Paris is the title of a French comic opera with music by François Adrien Boieldieu, “The French Mozart”, first performed in Paris in 1812. This tune, which began as a comic song and is contained in several 19th-century musicians manuscripts, was introduced as a march in the British Rifle Brigade, 95th Regiment, in 1842. The melody has later also been used for a single step dance in the North-West England morris dance tradition, where it is popular under the title “I'm Ninety-Five”.
