Length: approx. 3¾ mins. Sounds best with 2nd tenor doubled.
Do not be misled by the plainness of the cover of the original sheet music or the complete lack of dynamics or ornamentation in the composition, In Old Egypt Land is anything but plain. It opens with a 9- bar introduction followed by AABBACCA sections concluding with the "introduction" as a coda. The C-section has some pretty syncopated passages. Very melodious as one would expect of a piece that, according to the front cover, was also available as a song. In this recorder adaptation, the 1st tenor has the honour of having the melody throughout and is called upon to play a few high Eb's.
In Old Egypt Land was published by Ralph Ryman, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
