Seashore Girls

"Seashore Girls," is a playful, rambunctious musical description of a carefree, gleeful, sunny day at the beach. Its rapidly changing meters (6/8, 5/8, 7/8, 4/8, 4/4, 3/4, 2/4) result in tricky rhythms, and those rhythms and the inclusion of some syncopation contribute to the effervescent mood of the piece.  It is the second song of Hundley's song cycle Octaves and Sweet Sounds.
