Black Cinderella is a lovely ragtime two-step and cakewalk with delightful chord changes. Its form is AABBACCC with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude before the final C-strain which is itself played an octave higher than the first iteration. The keys used are F- and Bb-major for the AB- and C-strains respectively. For the final C-strain in this adaptation for recorder quintet, the 1st tenor has the rare honour of alternating to descant when taking the upper melody line. Great stuff indeed!
Black Cinderella was published by Peter McCormick, Toledo, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
