Daniels wrote Sugar Plum using the pseudonym L' Albert and apparently celebrates the sweet fruit in the form of a demure young lady shown on the cover of the original sheet music. This two step is a straightforward affairs written in the form of AABBACCAB with a 6-bar introduction and whereby the A B- and C-strains are in the major keys of Bb and Eb respectively. Whilst not quite Tchaikovsky, it is a lively and spirited composition nonetheless with much to delight a recorder sextet. The treble in particular will enjoy having the melodies from start to finish - the 1st and 2nd tenors have some bar-counting to do but get their rewards in the B- and C-strains.
Sugar Plums was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
