Holly Rag is a fine, effervescent composition with syncopation aplenty. Its form ABBACCDD with a 4-bar introduction.. The D strain itself opens with an 8-bar interlude. The melodies are shared between the descant and 1st tenor voices. Both the descant and treble have much bar-counting to do. Should they be bored, perhaps they might be persuaded to flesh-out a few bass chords in the B-strain (bars 29-36). This jolly piece could, as suggested by the title, well included in a ragtime Christmas programme.
Holly Rag was published by Raymond Litzenberger, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
