Length: approx. 2½ mins.
Society Swing is a jaunty, swinging march in AABBACC form with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude dividing the CC-strains the latter of which is an octave higher than the first iteration. The AB - and C-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the treble and 1st tenor voices share the melodies. The cover of the original sheet music shows an elegant ball room couple apparently about to break into dance. The elegance of the illustration is a little at odds with the jauntiness of the march.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
