(Joplin/Isaacs) (Level 2) SSAATTBB, piano, bass and drums. There is a slow, romantic feeling in this lovely rag. Around the image of a heliotrope bouquet it tells a tender tale of an old-fashioned wedding. In my arrangement, most of the story is told by an alto soloist. This is quite an easy piece.
