Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best if the 3rd tenor and bass are doubled.
Clothilda is an early work composed when Miss Niebergall was just going on nineteen and which she lovingly dedicated to her parents. It is bright and cheerful march having an ABBACC form with a 6-bar introduction. The A-strain has a bar length of 24 whilst the others are of 16 whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. The tenors share the melodies and the 1st and 2nd tenors have the special enjoyment of alternating to descants for the final triumphant C-strain. This piece makes a delightful contrast to her better known rags.
Clothilda was published by Carlin & Lennox, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
