Tyrolian Woodcutters' March is a splendid, jolly and charming affair. Its form is ABACDABA, the strains all contrasting well with each other. They are characterised by delightful Alpine touches, that is to say the descant, treble and 1st tenor voices share the melodies in close harmony (thirds). The C-section (bars 54-70) is especially distinctive whereby four basses come into play. It is further enhanced if vocalists could be found to sing lyrics which the composer provides in praise of the woodcutters. They are as follows:
In Tirol da san wol d' Holzknechtleut jederzeit voll Hamur spat und fruah, den dö habn 's Zeug dazua.
Alle fesch, keck und resch, jede Dearn hat das gern, ja die Leut hab'n a Schneid, a Schneid.
Great ensemble stuff indeed!
A tempo of 120 crotchets/min. is suggested.
