Peter Gink, obviously a fun piece, is an adaptation from Edvard Hagerup Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite I perhaps as a fitting companion to Asa's Toddy (1920) for which Cobb also made his apologies. The cover of the original sheet music shows a smiling supercilious pianist at his instrument in historical costume either about to make a crashing chord or ending the piece with an exaggerated flourish. Its form is ABACC with a 6-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. This adaptation for recorder sextet is an absolute must for those ensembles that love their basses and tenors as well as alternating between the instruments
