Phantom Isle is a dreamy set of two waltzes which fairly glide along. Mamie Williams dedicated this piece to a certain Miss Corinne Miller of whom nothing can be gleaned. It is written in AABBCCA form with an 8-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the BB- and CC-strains whereby the AB-, and C-strains are written in the keys of G and C respectively. The front cover shows a mysterious landscape in which a lonely dancer pointing heavenwards may be seen and who is observed by a lonely lute player lurking in the bushes- all very weird which the music is not.
Phantom Isle was published by J.W. Jenkins' Sons Music Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
