Twilight is a charming reflective composition in ABACA form with an 8-bar coda. Superb as an adaptation for recorder ensemble. The melodies are shared by three voices namely the treble, 1st tenor and bass all of whom have ample opportunity of displaying their musicianship. The treble is required to explore the stratospheric registers of his or her instrument whilst the bass not only has a beautiful solo but also several long rippling passages to set-off the treble's virtuosity. Stark used his own name in publishing this piece. For his Brain-Storm Rag (1907) written in the same year he used Bud Manchester as a pseudonym. Perhaps at that time he was attempting a Jekyll & Hyde to cover utterly different genres. If so, he was in complete accord with his contemporaries.
Twilight was published by the Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
