Fawn Eyes is yet another intermezzo that takes its inspiration from and pays homage to an Indian maiden. The cover of original sheet music shows a wide-eyed feather be-topped beauty holding what appears to be an amphora vessel peering from behind a copse of saplings. All very multi-culture indeed. The intermezzo itself is written in AABBACCCC form with an 8-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are in the major keys of G and CF respectively. The final 2 C-strain are preceded by an 8-bar interlude and are played an octave higher than the first iterations. The composer elicits a romantic mood with lyrical melodies at times accompanied by strong powwow drum rhythms. An all tenor/bass affair which the 1st tenor will particularly enjoy having all the melodies from start to finish.
Fawn Eyes was published by Chas. L. Johnson Publishing Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
