Rose Wood Rag is a rousing, cheerful rag with some tinkling passages. Its form is AABBCC with a 4-bar introduction, a 4-bar interlude preceding the CC-strains which themselves are separated by an 8-bar passage. The AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F and are of 16- and 32-bars respectively. The cover of the original sheet music is graced by the inserted photograph of one Josephine Jacoby who may or not be the famous Metropolitan Opera Singer.
Rose Wood Rag was published by Victor Kremer Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
