Très Moutarde is a splendid and absolutely delightful two-step which readily lends itself to transcription for recorder ensemble. As can be judged from the subtitle, Macklin clearly covered the market in that this piece can be regarded as a one-step or tango as borne out by the afternoon dance scene shown on the cover of the original sheet music. It was vastly popular on both sides of the Atlantic and has been much recorded right up to the present day. This piece inspired imitators such as Too Much Ginger (1913) by Joseph M. Daly and Too Much Raspberry (1916) by Sydney King Russell. In 1914, Louis H. Mentel even published a sequel, Plus Moutarde -More Mustard (DBE 968). Being an all tenor/bass affair, this recorder adaptation requires careful balance between the melody and rhythm sections and in some places it may be better for some or all of the bass voices to go down an octave. Please experiment, Cecil Macklin would surely not have minded - he may even be delighted!
Très Moutarde was published by Edward Schuberth & Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
