Length: approx. 4 mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor and bass are doubled.
Alabama Dream is a splendid cakewalk with a form of AABBCCDDBB with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AABBCC- and DDBB-strains are written in F- and Bb-major respectively. The A- and D-strains is basically a treble solos set off by bass chords and dialogue. In the C-strain the 1st tenor has the melody whilst all join in the fun for the B-strains of crashing chords. A great recorder ensemble piece! The cover of the original sheet music is the tasteful illustration of a handsome cakewalk pair gloriously attired in bright costumes.
Alabama Dream was published by John Church Jr. Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 84 crotchets/min. is suggested.
