Hop Lee is a pleasant little work with some pretty touches in AABBACCBB form. This recorder adaptation is a real ensemble piece as each of the melody voices has a share of the action. The 1st tenor in particular will enjoy his or hers solos in the A-sections.The cover of the original sheet music shows a solitary bland-faced pigtailed Chinese dancer apparently performing a sailor's hornpipe - an unlikely stance for a cakewalk!
Hop Lee was published by P.J. Lammers, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
