The word Shivaree is defined as an alternative to charivari meaning either a serenade of banging saucepans etc. to a just-married bridal pair or a hubbub (from the French serenade with pans, trays etc. to an unpopular person). Well, there is nothing unpleasant or pr cacophonous about the this composition which suggests the the composer had the former definition in mind. As an adaptation for recorder sextet, it is an all tenor/bass affair and here the bass voices are reminded not to overwhelm the tenors. Its form is AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A-, B- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F, D and Eb respectively whilst the A, B- and C-strain lengths are 24, 20 and 32 bars respectively.
Shivaree was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 100 crotchets/min. is suggested.
