Length: approx. 3¼ mins. Sounds best with the 1st tenor doubled.
Sour Grapes is a great rag with an AABBACCB form and a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the treble has the BC-strains whilst the 1st tenor has A-strain.
The cover of the original sheet music shows the dapper young composer in an oval inset, a little like a large grape, dominated by a huge bunch of the said fruit. There is nothing sour about this composition!
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Sour Grapes was published by The W.B. Morrison Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
