, a cheerful march two-step, appears to be a companion to Polly Prim
which had been written a year previously. Proof is the portrait of the said lass dangling from Peter Piper
's belt as shown on the front cover of the original sheet music. My case rests, M'Lud. Its form is basically AABBACCB with a 4-bar introduction, a 4-bar interlude between AC-strains and a 12-bar interlude between the BC-strains whereby the. AABBA- and CCB-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. The contrasting melodies are shared in this transcription for recorder sextet by the descant and 1st tenor, the treble here plays a supporting role in fleshing out the chords but is spared much bar-counting. The rhythm section comes to the fore for a few marcato il basso
passages. A great ensemble piece.
