Length: approx. 3¼ mins. Sounds best if the 2nd tenor plays the lower notes of chords only.
Pennant Rag is a pleasant jog-along rag in a "classic" AABBACCDD form. The B section has a pair of 3-bar chromatic runs requiring careful co-ordination between the voices whilst in the D lurks triplets enough to delight the rhythm section, the 2nd bass in particular. All-in-all a pleasant rag in which intermediate ensembles should find no difficulties.
In making this recorder adaptation, the editor gratefully acknowledges Leonard Kaufer, collector of Percy Wenrich music in San Jose, California, for generously providing access to his materials.
Pennant Rag was published by Charles I. Davis, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.

This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Jean Ridley of the Cupertino Crones, Cupertino, California.
