This Uncle Tom's Cabin has absolutely nothing to do with the same named novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896). It was her first published work which was written in 1852 and inspired by the enactment of the Fugitive Slave Law. The book was a huge success, and initially a scandal too, which not only removed her from poverty to the world stage in literature with European tours but also greatly advanced the cause of the abolition of slavery.
Uncle Tom's Cabin, the rag, on the other hand is a most jolly affair and still recorded even today. It has everything a ragtime recorder ensemble could wish for. As ragged as it gets, stirring melodies which are shared by the descant, treble and 1st tenor voices, some lovely "walking bass" passages for the rhythm section and most unusual in these recorder transcriptions, treble/bass alternation. Its form is AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude betewen the C strains. Great stuff indeed!
Uncle Tom's Cabin was published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
