A. E. Henrich dedicated Dixie Flyer
to the N.C. and St. L. Railroad. The front cover of the original sheet music does not show the same-named locomotive as one might expect, but a high-speed mule jockeyed by a hideous representation of an Afro-American so typical of those turn-of-the-century years. The composition itself is delightfully syncopated and has an AABBCCAB form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are in the recorder players' favourite four and five flatted major keys of Ab and Db respectively. An all tenor/bass affair in which the 1st tenor will take particular pleasure in having all the melodies from start to finish.
was published by A. E. Henrich
, Mt. Vernon, Indiana, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
