The Fireman's Dream is a charming and easy descriptive piece with a straightforward AABBCCDD form. It starts with a ten-bar introduction which is used to imitate the fire bells raising the alarm. Strains A and B are jolly cantering pieces and are fittingly labelled "Going to the Fire" (perhaps by horse!). "Fighting the Fire" commences in the D section where the rhythm section takes over the melody line highly reminiscent of Wenrich's Chicago Express (1905).
The Fireman's Dream was published by McKinley Music Co., Chicago & New York, USA.
A tempo of 100 crotchets/min. is suggested.

This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Karsten [Marvin] Seifert, Brandmeister [Leading Fireman] of Schönebeck in Bremen, Germany.
