The Dixie Rag of course celebrates Dixie, the informal name for the southern states of the USA, which is reflected by the river scene shown on the cover of the original sheet music, the title and the snatches of Dixie refrains incorporated within the composition. The rag itself is a bright and light-hearted affair with the typical Giblin touch in the shape of ascending and descending chromatic scales. Its form is ABACD with a 4-bar interlude between the A and C strains. Not too demanding and of moderate difficulty, this piece is the right stuff for recorder ensembles embarking on a ragtime voyage.
The Dixie Rag was published by Jos. M. Daly Music Co., Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
