The Whip is yet another great Holzmann march two step in AABBCC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A/B strains are each of 16 bars and written in Bb-major whilst the C-strain is of 48 bars in Eb-major. Judging by the front cover of the original sheet music, The Whip appears to celebrate either horse racing for the title is embellished with an equine full-face portrait and a whip intertwined between the letters or a same-named steam locomotive or possibly a film because the centrepiece shows a splendid stage set of a crashed engine beneath a bridge tastefully decorated with the dead, dying and grieving. Whatever, it is a splendid march and one can readily imagine that it was used in silent movies to accompany corresponding dramatic scenes.
The Whip was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
