Length: approx. 5¾ mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor is doubled.
A La Carte is a fine one step in AABBACCAABBA form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the A/B strains are each of 16 bars and written in F-major whilst the C-strain is of 32 bars in Bb-major. An all tenor/bass affair, the right balance has to be found to let the 1st tenor, who has the melodies from start to finish, shine. The cover of the original sheet music shows a coy dancing pair clad as clowns being gazed on by a trio of black cats. Whatever this has to do with the title or the music itself is a conundrum which is unlikely to be explained some ninety years after its composition and first performance.
A La Carte was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
