Chisholm copyrighted his Cameos in 1926 when Curwen published pieces 1 to 8. There are twenty five pieces and all have been recorded in the Music for Piano Series. Each of the pieces is given a title, some with quotations from an eclectic gathering of sources showing that Chisholm’s interests were broad ones from the start. The opening piece A Jewel From The Siderial Casket is headed by an unsourced quotation “B. (Beta) Cygnus-a drop of blood red with an emerald green companion” which refers to the spectacular double star. Cameos includes an exuberant piece Happiness. The offbeat left-hand chords give it a reckless immediacy suggestive of general tomfoolery, in which Chisholm indulged throughout his life.
