Texas Steer is a fine bubbling rag characterised by long solo runs for the 1st tenor in this adaptation for recorder quartet, another all tenor/bass affair. It has a quasi-sonata form of ABBACCA whereby the A-, B- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C, G and F respectively. The cover of the original sheet music shows the celebrated beast charging along with its tongue hanging out keeping an apprehensive eye on an unseen viewer. No doubt that noble animal is legitimately concerned about its hide and the prospects of a long untroubled life home on the range.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Texas Steer was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
