This must be one of Morley’s most popular solos.   In the heyday of the banjo, around the early 1900’s, most banjoists played it, and it appeared frequently on programmes of the many concerts, both amateur and professional, which were staged in those days.   The first section is unusual in construction because, instead of having chords with the melody at the top, Morley reverses the chords, making them arpeggio grace notes, finishing with the melody on the third string.   The title suggests a gentle, quiet piece of the 18th century and, although it can be played in strict tempo, there is also plenty of scope for the introduction of rubato and dynamics from pp to ff.   For public performance, it is an ideal piece to form the second in a group of three, contrasting with two faster solos.
