The composer respectfully dedicated Silver Leaf Rag
to his father, Mr. J. (Joseph( Goldsmith. This piece is a delightful, captivating rag with many nice delicate touches. Its form is AABBACC with an 8-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude between the C-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the keys of G and C respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the A- and B-strains are characterised by close harmony between the 1st and 2nd tenors punctuated by 2-bar descending solo runs. In the C-strain, the 3rd tenor comes to the fore by alternating to descant giving ample opportunity to display his or her virtuosity. The 16-bar interlude is pure magic that the editor can listen to over and over again. This is one of those compositions guaranteed to charm both audiences and performers alike..
