Length: approx. 2 ½ mins. Sounds best if the 2nd tenor is doubled.
Lampe respectfully dedicated this march two-step to the Daughters of the American Revolution using their name as its title. This voluntary women's service organisation which was founded in 1890, is dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children. It claims to be the most inclusive lineal society in the United States having some 170,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and throughout the world.
The march is a very jolly brisk piece with two spirited opening strains followed by a third Grandioso strain, a ragtime version of God Save America underlaid with a patriotic air.
Daughters of the American Revolution was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 104 crotchets/min. is suggested.
This recorder adaptation, reflecting Lampe's admiration for this noble organisation, is also respectfully dedicated to the recorder playing members of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
