This set of twelve short pieces forms a sequel to an earlier dozen entitled A House of Ghosts (after a line in a largely-forgotten poem by Humbert Wolfe). In a prefatory note to the older group I described them as a disparate collection of stray thoughts and modest ideas which had accumulated haphazardly, a little like an intermittent diary, but which one day suggested themselves as a set simply because by then there were quite a few of them, each looking a little lonely on its own. I had brought them together more for convenience of presentation than through any integrated intention. The pianist was invited to play them in any grouping or sequence, according to whim or occasion, even though the order given seemed best suited to a complete performance at one sitting.
