The Golden Age is a suite of three waltzes with a 22-bar introduction (tempo di Gavotte) in 2/4 time and a coda with elements of the 1st and 2nd waltzes. An eloquent, elegant and sweeping waltz quite in contrast to Barnard's rags and ragtime cakewalks. The golden age is personified on the cover of the original sheet music by a 17th-century beauty riding side-saddle on a handsome white horse, attended by a page and welcomed by a fawning dog. A golden age indeed!
