Cock A Doodle Doo - March Two Step
Length: approx. 2½ mins.
Chanticleer Rag is a fine, dare it be said, cock-a-doodling affair in ABBACC form with a 4-bar introduction written in Bb-major. The final C-strain is played an octave above the first iteration. The cover of the original sheet music shows a warbling singer clad in an enormous stage costume as a cock which is all very appropriate because Chanticleer is the literary name given to that avian creature especially in fairy tales and the like. This adaptation for recorder ensemble is just the job to wake up an audience at the start of a ragtime concert.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Chanticleer Rag was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
