"A Favorite Quick Step as performed by His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester's Band. Arranged for the Harp or Piano Forte", London, c.1798.

Based upon the French revolutionary song Ça ira, "The fall of Paris" became popular from the mid 1790s and became ubiquitous amongst the allied military bands occupying Paris after the Battle of Waterloo. It is more often entitled "The Downfall of Paris".
