Contributed by Jean Rhéaume:
Here is what is said in the book, “Madame Bolduc”, about that tune:
“Mrs. Bolduc presents here a melody of the type Waltz-Clog. In this musical genre, the rhythmic aspect dominates the lyricism of the melody. 
“This type of waltz was intended to accompany a gigue from England that had been popular in Quebec at the beginning of the century.”
