March of the Walking Dolls is a pretty composition that charms with its directness. Its form is AABACC with a 6-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude preceding the 3rd A-strain and a 2-bar interludes preceding the CC-strains. The AB- and C-strains are written in the recorder players' favourite major keys of Ab and Db respectively. The A-strain is characterised by oriental tones whilst the B- and C-strains are simple marches. The whole may be interpreted as a bevy of dolls that can be "walked" demonstrating their march skills in a large children's playroom. As such, it could well be marched by the performers too!
March of the Walking Dolls was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
