Although I agree that the rest of "Preludes'" settings are rather seedy, I
certainly haven't thought of the first one as being so. All of "Preludes"
seem (to me) generically urban, but I always think of the speaker composing
as he wanders the Beacon Hill area--what he did after his tea-time soirees.
