Dust 'Em Off is just the rag to get a recorder ensemble going. Thumping chords throughout ensure that no one nods off and the intermediate voices are involved from start to finish - no bar-counting here! This rousing rag is in AABBACCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude preceding the final C-strain which is played an octave higher than the first iteration. The AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F- and Bb respectively.
Dust 'Em Off was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
