Length: approx. 2¾ mins. Sounds best with the tenor doubled.
Clover Blossom Rag (the title as given over the piano score - the final "s" of blossoms got lost on the way from the front cover!) was listed in the publisher's blurb as ragtime that is different. Well, it is certainly cheerful enough composition in AABBCC form with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude between the C-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys C and F respectively. After a solid introduction and A- strain, the B-strain chars with its wit and pretty dialogue between the voices. The editor especially admires the C-strains which are a trebles delight.
Clover Blossom Rag was published by the Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
