Lily of the Prairie is yet another Indian Intermezzo so popular in those days and a worthy companion to Redwing (1907) - An Indian Fable and Sun Bird (1908). The cover of the original sheet music shows this particular Lily to be a demure Indian maid embraced by a Big Chief before their tepee. The composition itself is a bright and cheery affair in AABBACBB form with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude before the final BB strains. Keys used are C and F for the AABBA- and CCBB-sections respectively.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Lily of the Prairie was published by F. A. Mills, New York, USA.
