Wenonah is another of those works "cashing-in" on the then prevalent Indian craze. Its melody is delightfully easy and this recorder adaptation is well within the scope of intermediate ensembles, the soft tenor and bass sonorities coming to the fore. The cover of the original sheet music displays a charming, enigmatic Indian maid against a backdrop of wigwams. The front cover title spelling is at odds with that given on the score, to whit Wenona. This may be deliberate as Wenrich respectfully dedicated this piece to one Winona Winters. Possibly some musical pun or insider witticism was intended.
Wenonah was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 86 crotchets/min. is suggested.
