The Flying Wedge as a recorder trio is an arrangement of a plectrum style banjo solo published in Jacobs Banjo Collection Vol. 3. Its form is AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude preceding the final C-strain whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of D and G respectively.
The folksy melodies are arranged in close harmony between the treble and tenor voices for the A- and B-strains whereby the tenor takes the lead for the C-strain. A bright cheerful piece and a somewhat unusual addition to the repertoire for recorder trios.
The Flying Wedge was published by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 108 crotchets/min. is suggested.
