Length: approx. 4½ mins. Optional vocals (tenor). Words by Harry E. Smith & Francis Wheeler:
The Sheik of Araby was a tremendous hit. An evergreen, it is still much recorded and performed by all and sundry even today. The unforgettable Thomas Waller sang it regularly and produced the definitive jazz song version. The song itself relates the politically incorrect macho tale, in these enlightened times at least, of a sheikh pursuing and capturing his intended to "conquer love by fear". The performance of this transcription for recorder sextet is greatly enhanced by the accompaniment of a vocalist.
The Sheik of Araby was published by Waterson, Berlin & Snyder Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
