Length: approx. 3¼ mins.
Alhambra is an all tenor/bass affair which will particularly endear itself to those recorder ensembles that love these instruments and that are armed with a full battery of basses. The composition is in AABBB form with a 6-bar introduction and a 12 bar interlude preceding the final B- strain whereby the A- and B-strains are written in the major keys of F and D respectively.
It has a vaguely mysterious oriental character and no doubt celebrates the same-named Moorish palace, the final stronghold of the Muslim kings of Granada.
Alhambra a was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
