Stampede judging from both its title and subtitle strongly suggests that it was inspired by the Wild West and written for the silent movies to accompany cowboy films. Its form is AABBACCC with a 12-bar interlude separating the final C-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the final C-strain explores the upper range of a treble recorder's limits (top A). Should this be too difficult then it crotchets/min. is suggested that the 2nd treble, who in any case has nothing to do during the 12-bar interlude, alternates to descant in order to play the 1st treble's part in that final strain. The 1st treble then plays the 2nd treble's part. Easy OK?
Stampede was published by W.C. Simon, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
