Nicodemus and his Banjo is a pleasing straightforward cakewalk with memorable "folksy" strains suggesting perhaps that they derive from actual folk songs. In this recorder adaptation the treble player will enjoy having the honourable task of playing the melody throughout the piece after the opening four-bar introduction.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Nicodemus and his Banjo was published by The Standard Music Company (Grasmuk & Schott), New York, USA.
There are also treble solo and trio versions of this item.
