When Knighthood Was In Flower is a suite which comprises 2 waltzes with a 12-bar introduction and a coda in which strains from the 1st waltz are repeated. After a bright and breezy introduction the composition settles into a free-flowing sentimental waltz so typical of the late 19th-century and which just begs to be danced to. The very title is nostalgic harking back to earlier and better times when ladies were ladies and gentlemen were well - gentlemen.
When Knighthood Was In Flower was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA, and a piano roll was produced.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
