Carolina Chimes is a tuneful, quirky march two-step characterised by alternation between the upper and lower registers. It is written in AABCCA form with a 10-bar introduction whereby the AAB- and CCA-strains are written in the keys of F and Bb respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet the melodies are shared by the descant and 1st tenor voices the former of which has the delight of alternating to both bass and tenor for a few bars instead of just bar-counting whilst awaiting his/her return to the limelight. A somewhat out of the ordinary fun piece that is sure to entertain!
Carolina Chimes was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
