Queen Raglin, spelled Queen Raglan on the cover of the original sheet music which also shows the Queen herself smiling benevolently from her throne, is a fine syncopated cakewalk which has many similarities with its predecessor or companion, Dixie Flyer (1901). The composition itself has an AABBCCC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are in the recorder players' favourite four and five flatted major keys of Ab and Db respectively. The final two C-strains are introduced by an interesting 16-bar interlude. The treble voice will take particular pleasure in having all the melodies from start to finish. For those recorder ensembles that enjoyed the Dixie Flyer, they will equally enjoy Queen Raglin.
Queen Raglin was published by H.A. French, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
