Sing Ling Ting is one of a number of Chinese theme Cobb compositions which include Almond Eyes (1921), Broken China (1922) and Peter Gink (1918). It "chinkles "quite prettily and as a recorder sextet, it is an all tenor/bass affair requiring that the bass voices do not to overwhelm the tenors. The composition is in AABBAC form with an 8-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude preceding the C-strain whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively.
Sing Ling Ting was published in Cadenza by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
