Length: approx. 3¾ mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor and bass are doubled.
Cobb originally dedicated this bright and cheerful march, Across the Hot Sands
, to one Louis Harlow, Conductor of the Aleppo Temple Drum Corps, Boston, Mass.
Its form is of a 4-bar introduction followed by AABBCCDCC strains. The treble voice will especially enjoy this piece having the limelight from start to finish. This pleasure is further accentuated in the D strain (originally scored for drums and fife!) whereby the treble and great bass luxuriate in a 16-bar duet. All good fun indeed!
Across the Hot Sands
was published by Oliver Ditson Company
, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 168 crotchets/min. is suggested.
