Although Scott Joplin's name appears on the title page of Lily Queen as a collaborator, the work was entirely composed by Arthur Marshall. Their publisher was behind this sale-boosting ruse to which Joplin generously consented. This is a charming, simple piece was apparently inspired by a Gibson girl as seen on the cover of the original sheet music. [The Gibson girl was the creation of the illustrator Charles Gibson whose pen-and-ink drawings appeared in popular magazines such as Scribner's, Harper's, Collier's and The Century. They represented the ideal woman in America in the early 20th century.]
Lily Queen was published by W. W. Stuart, New York, USA.
A tempo of 68 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a treble solo version of this item.
