The pictorial Glad Smiles
as depicted on the cover of the original sheet music is a bevy of five smiling beauties bound up and made into a bouquet of red roses set against a tasteful pale blue pastel background. The intermezzo itself is a happy charming affair in AABBAACCCC with a 6-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude the splitting the CC-strains. The AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively.
In this adaptation for recorder sextet, there is quite a bit of bar-counting to be done except for the basses who have a whale of time with long solo passages and a little walking bass. The treble and 1st tenor both have melodies whilst the 2nd tenor has the joy of alternating to descant. A great ensemble piece to bring glad smiles all around!
