The Pace That Kills was apparently a march in support of an early anti-speeding campaign before the days of traffic laws as the front cover of the original sheet music shows a diminutive demon flying a monstrous winged red open sports car hell-bent for Hades. The march itself is however such a bright and cheerful affair that it probably achieved quite the opposite and even more speeding resulted. Its form is basically AABBCCDD with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude which precedes each iteration of the D-strain. If a recorder ensemble should ever want to support an anti-speeding campaign against those selfish motorists then this is just the piece to be included in their programme!
The Pace That Kills was published by Will Rossiter, Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
