Metropolitan Rag is a charming and tuneful rag which coming from the pen of an established opera singer is somewhat out of the ordinary. Its form is ABCDAB whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the treble has the melodies throughout except where the 3rd tenor alternates for a few bars in the D-strain to descant. Basically, as an all tenor/bass affair where the basses, who also have a few moments, should show restraint with their "umpahs". All-in-all a pleasing ensemble piece.
