Anoma is an intriguing title. Taking a guess it may be a name of West African origin which Dabney picked as court musician in Haiti . It is unlikely that it celebrates the same named River known to Buddhists the world over. The cover of the original sheet music which shows a seated elegant Victorian lady fanning herself only adds to the mystery. The rag itself is in the sonata form of AABBAACCAA with a 4-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude separating the CCAA-strains and also as a coda. The whole is written in F-major. Those who enjoy Oh! You Devil (1910) will certainly enjoy this piece.
Anoma was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
