Misc. Comments

  • According to Oxford Music, the well-known French revolutionary song Ah, ça ira (1790) adopted a tune from a popular contredanse. The contredanse was known as Carillon national, but when "Ça ira" is sung to it, it becomes the revolutionary song. Also according to Oxford Music, it accompanied "almost every incident of the Terror".
aka: "Ah ! Ça ira, dictum populaire, air du carillon national". Published ca.1790, indeed, as "Le retour du champs de Mars. Air du carillon national, [texte par M. Déduit]" according to Worldcat. BNF also has, attributed to Bécourt, "Suitte de (followup to, not suite of?- ES) Ça ira l'aristocratie en déroute. Air du carillon national." - ES
