Purchasing information Notice for leaders/bass players
Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor and bass recorders are doubled.
Bell's Academy March is a bright, jolly, cantering two-step, an early work written when Lenzberg was just 16 years old. It was respectfully dedicated to a certain Professor Horace M. Bell of Baltimore, Maryland. Whether Lenzberg wrote this in honour of his school or not is sheer, ungrounded, romantic speculation on part of the author. Intensive research has revealed nothing.
If the first tenor is doubled and purism rules, then one of these could rewardingly help out the bass in bars 13-22 and 34 by alternating to bass for a few puffs.
Bell's Academy March was published by Sanders & Stayman, Washington, D.C., USA.
A tempo of 166 crotchets/min. is suggested.
