Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best with 1st tenor doubled. Optional vocals (tenor)
Alamo Rag is a straightforward period piece of parlour music, banal ballad (words by Ben Deely: - at least from a point-of-view firmly in 2002) an' all - typical Tin Pan Alley but nonetheless quite entertaining. It seems to be obvious, at least being gleaned from the original sheet music cover, that the song was written for Wenrich's wife, Dolly Connolly.
This recorder adaptation is not particularly demanding without a vocalist that is, and well suited to beginners.
Alamo Rag was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
There is also a tenor solo version of this item.
