Scott and indeed his publisher John Stark ("The Publisher of Ragtime That Is Different" - Stark's own blurb) were never tired of proclaiming that their ragtime offerings represented the real McCoy and Pegasus
certainly fits the bill. It has an AABBCC form whereby particularly the A strain is most decidedly classic. One authority suggests that because of a Stark requirement that the later rags should fit just two pages, a fourth strain or repeated A strain is missing and as a substitute he performs Pegasus with a repeated A strain after BB. It works!
As a recorder ensemble piece this adaptation is well balanced in that the descant and treble voices share the melodies with the tenor. A fun piece!
