is a later, mature classic Scott rag in AABBACCDD form whereby the A and B strains are in Ab major whilst the C and D strains are in Eb-major. The piece benefits if the tempo is slightly increased for the C and D strains as they contrast quite strongly to those in the first part.The cover of the original sheet music is an odd composition comprising two panels; the left panel has a woodcut of an Elizabethan troubadour playing to an empty balcony and the right one has a photograph of a pensive beauty looking directly into the camera. Exactly the same artwork was used one year later more appropriately by the Quaker publisher John Stark for another Scott piece namely Troubadour Rag (1919)
was published by Stark Music Co
, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There are also sextet
and descant solo
versions of this item.
