Thanks for the info. Does it help? Well, yes and no....
It's good to know the music to which those folks danced Lancers, but we were
kinda hoping it'd be some good reels or jigs, ones that we like and ones
that our musicians can play....

Lancers Quadrilles were danced to the popular music of the day. An annual
ball I attend has several Lancers in the program. They are danced to
& Sullivan, in particular Trial by Jury Yeoman of the Guard and Patience.
There is an ancient recording by Jimmy Shand using these tunes.
Hope this helps,
