Dimples is yet another Cobb all tenor/bass affair which will particularly endear itself to those recorder ensembles that love these instruments and that are armed with a full battery of basses. The composition is in AABACCA form with a 4-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude preceding the final A-strain whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of Bb- and Eb respectively.
The Dimples in question can be seen on the cover of the original sheet music to be a chubby, happy and dimpled infant. In this adaptation for recorder quintet, the basses have to take special care that they do not drown out the tenor voices, the first of which having the melodies from start to finish. If there ever was the need to perform in a nursery then this would be the piece!
