, another Heltman "floral" composition, is a pleasing syncopated march in the form of AABBCCB with a 4-bar introduction and two 4-bar interludes, one between the BC- and the other between the CB strains, whereby the ABBA- and CCB are written in the major keys of C- and F- respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet the melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor voices. The quiet heavily contrasted initial C-strain is a lovely passage which the tenors and basses have all to themselves. A great ensemble piece!
The cover of the original sheet music has the same general layout of Heltman's other "floral" pieces, Daisy Rag (1908)
and Clover Blossom Rag (1910)
, and shows a smiling lady surrounded by orange petals, yet another botanical improbability perhaps but just as tasteful nonetheless.
