Mariutch Down at Coney Isle tells the musical tale of an Indian maiden on an excursion to that famed amusement park in Brooklyn so much loved by New Yorkers. Its form is ABCCDC with a 4-bar introduction and is written in G-major. The introduction and AD-strains are characterised by tom-tom effects which should be taken lightly by the basses in this adaptation for recorder quintet. The 1st tenor has all the melodies from start to finish and will especially enjoy the happy C-strain with its joking closing bars. The final C-strain is scored 8va ad lib which pushes the tenor instrument to its upper limits - here a rapid alternation to descant may be a solution. All-in-all a pleasing intermezzo.
