Chas. L. Van Baar, the composer of this splendid march, dedicated it to none other than John Phillip Sousa, the march composer supreme. Tongue-in-cheek, that dedication linked with such a prestigious organisation given in the work's title must have been a sales booster. Joking aside, this is a fine, rousing march which should give pleasure to performers and audiences alike. Beginners will have no difficulty with this piece.
This recorder adaptation faithfully reproduces the original published sheet music even to the extent of perpetuating the discrepancy between the titles given on the cover and on the inside sheet (page 3) namely Yale Society Two-Step and The Yale March respectively. Please take your pick!
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested. Yale Society Two-Step was published by Brooks & Denton Co., New York, USA.
This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to all recorder players, past and present, at Yale University.
