Despite its title there is nothing ramshackle (except perhaps the dilapidated shack shown on the cover of the original sheet music) about Ramshackle Rag. On the contrary it is a well crafted and balance composition. Its form is AABBACCC form with an 8-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude between the final CC-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. The A-strain is characterised by dialogue between the basses and the melody voices, the B-strain is a beautiful treble solo whilst all join in the harmonies in the C-strain. A great ensemble piece for recorder quintet.
Ramshackle Rag was published by Ted Snyder Music Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
