| ||The Midnight Trot (1916)|
A Novelty One Step and Trot - Maxixe
Length: approx. 3½ mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor is doubled.
The Midnight Trot as originally produced in America by Mazie King and Ted Doner, was proudly proclaimed by the publisher to be the season's great success. It has an AABBACCA sonata form with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the AC strains. Heavily syncopated, as "raggy" as one could wish, the treble voice in particular having most of the action will especially enjoy its performance. The icing on the cake would to have this piece accompanied by an elegant dance pair!
The Midnight Trot was published by Will Rossiter, Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 76 crotchets/min. is suggested.
