As written previously in other forewords, it is the author's idle conjecture (based on the titles alone and entirely without factual foundation it is hastened to add) that the trio of 1921 compositions comprising Poor Buttermilk (1921)

is an absolutely charming piece, heavily syncopated with many typical Confrey passages containing triplets immediately followed by quaver/semi-quaver pairs (sometimes broken!) which have an intoxicating, mesmerising effect albeit that such passages are extraordinarily difficult to play en ensemble
What all the named piece do have in common are the heavy demands made on the performer, their genuine novelty and the delight they give to audiences and performers alike.
