The title of the work is 6 Tone Pictures for Piano. The cover of Opus 47 No.2 lists 4, including also a Minuet; the first three are known to exist (through digital scans - nos. 1 and 2 - or through other evidence), the Minuet not so (presently), not even the names of the other two (to this writer anyway and presently.) The Swing Song is Sudds' Swing Song No.1; a second (so numbered on the first page of score, though not on the cover) was published as Op.110 by W.F. Shaw in 1882.
No.6 (Le Chant de Coeur) is also at LoC. The back page (omitted) of no.6 advertises the new magazine The Monthly Musical Record.
No.1 reviewed (positively) in Dwight’s Journal of Music, vol.38, no.16, p.335, November 9 1878.
