The galop (not gallop) was a lively society dance in 2/4 time which was particularly popular during the second half of the 19th century; the Post Horn Galop, by Herman Koenig, is probably the most famous example of this dance. This one lacks a title; the "de concert" part was often added to dance forms (polkas, waltzes, etc.) meaning that the compositions were not actually meant to be danced to. It was written by a prolific composer and teacher for the banjo, A.H. Nassau Kennedy, born in Peterborough, Ontario, who came to England in 1894 and returned to his native Canada in 1924. He is probably best known nowadays for his "Colorado Buck Dance" which is featured as an introductory piece for the Classic Banjo style in "Banjo for Dummies" by Bill Evans.
