Southern Beauties is a pleasant tinkling march with some nice touches. The front cover of the original sheet music shows as one might expect, a portrait of a beautiful Southern charmer in delicate pastel colours. Its form is AABBACCCC with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude preceding each of the final two C-strains whereby the AABBA- and CCCC- strains are in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder quintet, the melodies are shared by the treble and 1st tenor and the whole is ornamented with diddly-dips and even the bases have their say - especially in the interludes with a few walking passages.
Southern Beauties was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
