Cinder-Ella, Darktown's opposite number to Grimm's Cinderella, is shown cover of the original sheet music to be a ragged young Negress tending a huge cauldron whilst being gazed upon by "Cinders", 6 stick-Piccaninnies displayed as triplets on a treble staff. The Cinder-Ella Rag itself is a pleasing composition with an AABCDC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AAB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the treble voice has the honour and pleasure of having the melodies from start to finish while all will enjoy and contribute to the weird and wonderful chords in the D-strain.
The Cinder-Ella Rag was published by J.M. Asher Jr., .
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
