, apparently a companion piece to Stedman's Cinders
, is a pleasant, easy flowing rag with a number of nice touches in the not quite sonata form of ABACB with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar coda interestingly scored as a "symphony". In this adaptation for recorder the melodies are shared between the treble and 1st tenor voices. The original piano score is completely devoid of repeats positively inviting repetition of some of the sections. Please experiment!
The cover of the original sheet music is a tasteful portrait of a smiling gap-toothed Negro lad set against a plain buff background. A welcome change to so many of those hideous caricatures sadly, from today's point-of-view, typical of the early ragtime era.
