Parade of the Teddy Bears, an early work beautifully illustrated on the cover of the original sheet music no doubt celebrating those then famous recent presidential exploits, is a lively march in 6/8 time. Its form is AABBACDD with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude preceding the C-strain. The AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor voices whilst the basses too have their say at times. It is a worthy companion to the much later March of the Walking Dolls (1922).
Parade of the Teddy Bears was published by H.C. Weasner & Co., Buffalo, New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
