Across the Ocean is a cheerful, amusing descriptive march in a "classic" AABBCCDD form with an 8-bar introduction and an 8-bar passage between the BB and CC sections. Wenrich leaves us in no doubt as to what this piece is all about. It is scored progressively with "Steamer Whistles Warning For Visitors To Go Ashore", "The Bugle" Sounds", "The Band Plays A Merry Tune", "Out On The Ocean", "Sailing Smoothly", "Storm Begins", "Raging Waters" and finishes with "Storm Quiets". The ideal music for an aquatic outing!
In making this recorder adaptation, the editor gratefully acknowledges Leonard Kaufer, collector of Percy Wenrich music in San Jose, California, for generously providing access to his materials.
Across the Ocean was published by McKinley Music Co., Chicago & New York, USA.
