Love is King is a pleasant flowing composition comprising two unnamed waltzes and a coda.. This recorder adaptation is especially demanding on the 1st bass; not only does some tricky ornamentation have to be dealt with but extended playing in the higher registers when following the melody line has also to be achieved. Should this be too "squeaky" then playing an octave lower can be done without too much detriment. The title is charmingly illustrated on the front cover of the original sheet music by a solemn crowned Cupid as a king attended by a pair of shy cherubim. Two white doves at the King's feet round off the picture.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
