Georgia Echoes is a pleasant stroll-along two step characterised by fine tootling passages punctuated by heavy chords. Its form is AABBACCCBB with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the C- and B-strains whereby the AABBA- and CCCBB-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder quintet, the melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor voices. The 2-colour, green/yellow, cover of the original sheet music has a circular inset dominated by a Southern belle with an improbable hair-do gazing on an oblivious banjo-playing Negro sat on a bale of cotton at the edge of a riverside pier. In the background, an approaching steamboat may be discerned. The scene is thus set for these Georgian Echoes and should be borne in mind when performing this little delight.
Georgia Echoes was published by S. Simon Publisher, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
