Brass Buttons is yet another Cobb 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 AABBCCCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude preceding the final CC-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of D- and G respectively.
This is a bright, chirpy jog-along march guarantied to liven the step of even the crustiest dancers. The basses will particularly enjoy the B-strain in which they have the melody for the first 8-bars before handing over to the upper voices.
Brass Buttons was published in The Cadenza by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
