Oodles of Pep is an extravagant and strident affair as characterised both by posturing dancers on the cover of the original sheet music and by the title itself. Burton dedicated this piece to his own orchestra addressing them as "The Orchestra with Pep Its form is AABBCCCC with a 5-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude between the CC- and CC-sections whereby the AB- and C-strains are in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. The CC-sections are scored Very piano and Very forte successively which leaves the 2nd tenor with nothing to do for that section's first iteration. For the rest of the recorder sextet however, they are fully occupied from start-to-finish and even the bass has no little part of the melody. A great ensemble piece.
Oodles of Pep was published by The Burton Fischer Co., Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA.
