The Harvest Hop is a fine tootling or whistling barn dance begging to be danced to and, incidentally, just perfect for a treble recorder. The cover of original sheet music shows predictably a barn scene replete with fiddler, dancing couples and an old man for all the world like Abraham Lincoln gazing on over piles of pumpkins and sweet corn - all the ingredients for a harvest celebration. chocolate-box dandified young lady with an enormous hairdo and bonnet to match. The dance is written in the sonata form of AABACCA form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are in the major keys of C and F respectively.
The Harvest Hop was published by Chas. L. Johnson Publishing Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
