Soap Suds, an early Irene Giblin ragtime compositions, has an AABBCCA form with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the CC- and A-strains whereby the AABB- and CCA strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. The original sheet music appropriately shows a boy and girl blowing soap bubbles all quite in accord with the effervescence of the composition.
In this adaptation for recorder sextet the treble voice has most of the melodies except for the initial A-strain where the honours go to the 1st tenor. In the final A-strain the 1st tenor has the final bars outside the normal range of his/her instrument but has a 2-bar rest to alternate to treble if required.
Soap Suds was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
