Carnation March (title as given on score) or Carnations March (if you prefer the title as given on the cover of the original sheet music) is a fine swing-along march with some nice touches and snares to trap the unwary. Its form is AABBACC-CC with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude where the B strain is of an unusual 15 bars the others being of a normal 16 bars. The 15 bar touch surprises but seems to work - its effect is heightened by the fact that the following A strain is also abbreviated to 15 bars! All-in-all a pleasing composition which should charm performers and audiences alike.
Carnation March was published by Ted Snyder Music Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
