African Pas' was respectfully dedicated to George W. Chisholin'. This happy and lively ragtime two-step was described in a typical Stark blurb as "easy and brilliant - good to catch the ragtime swing". Its form is AABACDC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and CD-strains are in the major keys of G and C-respectfully. In this adaptation for recorder quintet, the melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor whilst the rhythm section has the happy task of providing a solid backing and avoiding the temptation to overdo the "umpahs"!
African Pas' was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
