The Soubrette in question is the pert young lady, probably a showgirl, shown on the cover of the original sheet music. The relaxed and free-flowing waltz (no syncopation here) itself has an AABBCCA form with an 8-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude between CC- and A-strains and a 16-bar coda. The A- and BC-strains are written in the major keys of D and G respectively. In this adaptation for recorder sextet, the 1st tenor has all the running whilst the 1st bass is asked to alternate to tenor for a few bars. This piece may well be used in ragtime programmes as a contrast or just to set the atmosphere.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Soubrette was published by The W.B. Morrison Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
