This suite of tone poems has survived as MacDowell's best-known work. Included among the 10 pieces are the familiar miniatures, "To a Wild Rose" and "Will o' the Wisp." The last work of the set, "Told at Sunset" reiterates a considerable amount of thematic material from earlier works, making the suite especially effective when performed in its entirety. The pieces are similar in difficulty to "Sea Pieces," Op. 55.
This title has selections that range in difficulty from SMP Level 5-8.
