Automobile is a happy homage to those most delightful of personages, the lady car driver, a colourful example of which adorns the cover of the original sheet music. Obviously a fun piece, it is heavily scored with Honk! The composer's intention is presumably to musically describe a motor jaunt by a lady driver. It is written in AABBCCA form with a 6-bar introduction, a 2-bar interlude preceding the CC-strains and a further 6-bar preceding the final A-strain. The A-, B- and C- strains are written in the keys of D, G and C respectively. In this adaptation for recorder quintet, the 1st tenor will especially enjoy taking a descant for the final C-strain. A great companion to Rose de Haven's Carolina Chimes (1904)!
Automobile was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
