Mike Bernard scored Lemon Drops as "very raggy" which indeed it is. It is a fine flowing rag par excellence in AABBACCC with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude between the CC and C strains. His standing as a pianist is emphasised by the publisher's assertion that he was The Rag Time King on the cover of the original sheet music. In this adaptation for recorder the melodies are shared between the treble and 1st tenor voices. A performers delight!
Lemon Drops was published by The Jos. Morris Co., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
A tempo of 78 crotchets/min. is suggested.
