Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best with the 2nd tenor doubled.
That Hindu Rag is, as an adaptation for recorder quintet, an all tenor/bass affair requiring that the bass voices do not to overwhelm the tenors. The composition is in AABBACC form with an 8-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude preceding the CC-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. The second iteration of the C-strain is played an octave higher than the first. In Jacob's Musical Mosaics, Vol. 8 (1924) an interesting note is included regarding photoplay usage - here the piece is recommended for jazz and slap-stick comedy (neutral or Oriental). As such it might well go together with Cobb's That Tangoing Turk (1914).
That Hindu Rag was published by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
