Dance of the Sun Rays was one of Morrison's earliest works the copyright of which he regained from Popular Music Co., Chicago some 10 years after it was published for use by his own publishing house. It is a waltz of some charm and merit. It has an AABCCA form with a 9-bar introduction and a 5-bar interlude between the C- and A-strains whereby the AC- and B-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively.
In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the treble voice is called on to display virtuosity especially in the B-strain which is characterised by cascading triplets.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Dance of the Sun Rays was published by Popular Music Pub. Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
