Priscilla is a pretty composition of lyrical melodies which trip along most pleasantly evocative of ballroom days in the old south. Its form is AABBCCB with a 4-bar introduction and an 12-bar interlude separating the CC- and B strains whereby the AABBA- and CCB-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. . As transcribed for recorder sextet it is a splendid ensemble piece. The 2nd tenor here not only has a typical rhythm section part and has some nice fillips but also amongst his or her duties alternates to descant in taking over the melody line. They basses too have lovely octave passages, especially in the interlude. Great stuff!
Priscilla was published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
