This is a dramatic work with an atmospheric, somewhat foreboding opening and a vigorous Allegro. Cleverly written, Enchanted Village is a rather stern piece (in natural minor) that succeeds in sounding more difficult than it is, despite being confined to the basic six notes first learned by beginning players. There are effective contrasts between legato and marcato playing that provide excellent teaching opportunities.
