Honeysuckle has the same form of ABBACCB with a 4-bar introduction which Botsford later used in his The Boomerang Rag (1916) whereby the whole piece is written in the major key of Bb. This transcription for recorder quintet is an all bass and tenor affair that the 1st tenor will especially enjoy having the really ragged melodies from start to finish. The cover of the original sheet music predictably shows a honeysuckle rose by moonlight.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Honeysuckle was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
