*Notes: “When we say that someone have a « front de boeuf » , its generally means « very cheeky » It has the sense effrontery, insolent, unashamed, barefaced, brazen… but also cheeky, perky. It’s a pure Québécois expression.” –Jean Rhéaume.
Quadrilles des Ancêtres seems to be the name this tune is best known by.
