Written under the pseudonym of Eugene La Farge, Rose-Buds
is a companion piece to Love's Delight by Connolly and Honeymoon by Brown all described as 3-steps on the front cover of the original sheet music. The names Connolly and Brown may too be pseudonyms and it is just conceivable that all were penned by Wenrich himself. Rose-Buds
itself is a pretty composition of medium difficulty in this adaptation for recorder quintet. Its form is AABBACA with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A-, B- and C- strains are in the major keys of G, D and C respectively. The 1st tenor has all the running except for the first 4 bars of the C-strain where the basses come to the fore. The 2nd tenor has the option of taken a treble for a few tiddly bits, some compensation for extended bar-counting whilst the 1st bass has the pleasure of alternating to tenor for a few bars. All-in-all a dainty piece, not too difficult but there is enough to watch out for in making a good performance.
