Oh That Beautiful Rag is just that and a most enjoyable composition indeed. Correspondingly the cover of the original sheet music is graced by a beautiful dancing lady in a swirling ball gown. The rag itself has an AABBACCCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude between the CC-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. It is a great ensemble piece for recorder quintet as there is much dialogue between the voices. The 1st tenor has much to do with just a little respite in the interlude.
Oh That Beautiful Rag was published by Ted Snyder Music Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
