The Ghost Breaker was dedicated to the star of Maurice Campbell's same-named production namely Mr. H. B. Warner in the part of Warren Jarvis whose photo is prominently printed on the cover of the original sheet music. The march is itself a bright and breezy affair in AABBCDCDC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A- and B-strains are of 16-bars and written in Bb-major. The C- and D-strains are in Eb-major. The D-strain is actually a lively 12-bar interlude and the C-strain is of 32-bars. In this adaptation for recorder ensemble the 3rd tenor is tasked with lightning alternations to bass. Should this be too difficult then the problem can be resolved with an additional bass or tenor player.
The Ghost Breaker was published by Will Rossiter, Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
