The cover of the original sheet music shows a solitary cabbage leaf upon which the composer's name is misspelled as "Less Copeland". A mistake or perhaps a ragtime joke? Who knows? The cover acclaims this piece as "a superb ragged melody" and "A Rich Two-Step" is given as its subtitle. Its form is AABBCCB each of the bubbly strains being "folksy" in character, the B-strain allowing the descant to demonstrate virtuosity whilst the C-strain lets the treble come to the fore. In all, a well-balanced composition with which recorder ensembles can have a lot of fun.
