Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best with the 1st tenor doubled.
Love and Laughter is an effervescent affair that fairly sparkles and bubbles along. Its form is AABBAA with a 4-bar introduction and two 8-bar interludes each separating the A-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the recorder players' favourite major keys of Eb and Ab respectively. An obviously a fun piece with the A-strain scored sempre staccato contrasting with the gentle B-strain scored dolce.
Love and Laughter was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
