Polska efter Juringius

There’s a bit of mystery to this popular slängpolska from Småland: is it really efter Magnus Juringius?

That’s probably its most famous name, but since it’s definitely in the Sexdrega Collection, it can also be known as “Polonäs, sexdregasamlingen del 2 nr 56.”

You can look at scans of these late-18th-century notebooks online thanks to Musikverket! (Look at page 17 of Anders Larsson’s notebook to see the original.)

If you’d like to play it too, here is sheet music complete with suggested chords (just right-click to save and print the image):
