Rainbow is a bright and cheerful composition in AABBACCABD form with an 8-bar introduction. It readily conjures up an idyllic Indian scene, tepees, Indian maids, feathered chiefs, children playing et al, set beneath a bright rainbow in a sparkling atmosphere after a recent shower. In this adaptation for recorder, the melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor who will both need plenty of puff.
The word "intermezzo" in the subtitle is used as a term to mean a short concert piece in the same was as Brahms for example who used it for his short piano works.
Rainbow was published by Francis, Day & Hunter, London W.C.2, England.
A tempo of 96 crotchets/min. is suggested.
