Motor King is a jaunty march in AABBCCCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude dividing the CCCC-strains the latter of which is an octave higher than the first iteration. The AB - and C-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the treble and 1st tenor voices share the melodies. The cover of the original sheet music shows three intrepid motorists, suitably attired for the great outdoors, dashing along in a 2-seat open sports car. The driver is accompanied by a young lady with her scarf streaming out behind her in the wind whilst the goggled third passenger occupies the jump seat in the boot. With a little imagination, the themes could be descriptive of various aspects of motor junket.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
