Described as "America's Patriotic Two-Step" when originally published, this early Pryor work has all the spark and hallmarks of his later compositions. It was played by Sousa's Band of course, and in its 14th edition was patriotically inscribed to the sons and daughters of the American Revolution. Bright, breezy and fairly bubbles with many whistling passages. Its form is AABBCCDCDC with a 4-bar introduction. In this adaptation for recorder the descant voice has mainly a supportive rôle having the in the B- and D strains. In waiting out the C-strain the descant is however cordially invited to a few puffs on either tenor or bass or both. All-in-all a, dare it be said, a fine party piece!
Ye Boston Tea Party was published by Brokaw Music Pub. Co., St. Joseph, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
