I have never heard any of MacDowell's pieces from his Fireside Tales, but I looked through the set recently and was drawn to these three because of their titles. The music is pretty with sweet, rich, and gorgeous harmonies, and I find MacDowell's detailed descriptions so cute and appealing. For example, in the no. 1 his tempo marking is "Simply and tenderly". And in no. 3 he writes, "With deep feeling, dreamily". Also later on in a section he marks, "like men's voices". Anyway, hope these are okay. Like I said, I've never heard any of them before, so comments appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!
