With Fire and Sword seems to be an inappropriate title for this beautiful, at times sombre march. The cover of the original sheet music shows however a warlike crimson clad miss, sword aloft and matching aloof expression apparently reining-in, Western fashion, a galloping or charging horse. The march itself is of AABBCCC with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude preceding each of the final two C-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of D and G respectively. The B-strain may for some be too high for the 1st tenor recorder but there is time enough to safely alternate to a treble. The melodies of the C-strains are shared by the 1st and 2nd tenors.
With Fire and Sword was published by Carl Hoffman Music Co, Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
