Brush Creek Rag is a heavily chorded composition with no less than four contrasting themes laced with a fair amount of printers' black ink. For those recorder ensembles that delight in alternation, here they have a field-day. Not only do the 1st tenor and bass regularly alternate but the trebles too are obliged to alternate to sopraninos for the opening and closing glissandi. The melodies are mainly shared by the upper three voices who also have some bar-counting to do. The keys used are D and G
Brush Creek Rag was published by Geo. B. Jennings, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
