Length: approx. 2¾ mins. Sounds best if the 2nd tenor plays the lower notes of chords only.
Wenrich dedicated Dixie Blossoms to his sister Miss Nellie Wenrich - the Dixie blossom charmingly depicted on the front cover of the original sheet music perhaps? As for this delightful piece itself, it has three distinctive melodies in AABBACCB form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AABBA and CCB strains are in the major keys of C and F respectfully. In this adaptation for recorder, the treble voice has the limelight practically from start to finish. The 3rd tenor has some bar-counting to do and has to cope with a few low Bs. Perhaps alternating to a bass may be the answer. This fun piece is technically within the reach of all ensembles except for absolute beginners.
Dixie Blossoms was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 96 crotchets/min. is suggested.
