The Nautical Toddy is an amusing and delightful composition based on a sailor's hornpipe. Its form is AABBCCDC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. As a recorder sextet, this is an all tenor/bass affair and here the bass voices are reminded not to overwhelm the tenors except for the C-strain where the 2nd bass has a solo where the other voices should hold back. Salted with many 3- and 4-bar chords, this is yet another Cobb piece that will delight those bass-loving recorder ensembles.
The Nautical Toddy was published in The Tuneful Yankee by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
