Wenrich respectfully dedicated Flower Girl to a certain J. Frank Huntoon. The intermezzo itself is a charming piece in AABCC form with an 8-bar introduction and a twelve bar interlude between the CC strains whereby the final C strain is played an octave higher than the first. In this adaptation for recorder, the melody of the initial C strain is shared by the bass and 1st tenor requiring careful co-ordination. The tasteful cover of the original sheet music depicts an Edwardian beauty, not exactly a Gibson girl perhaps but presumably the flower girl herself, in profile surrounded by daffodils quite in harmony with the music.
Flower Girl was published by Arnett-Delonais Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
