Colin Decio composed this suite by arranging four melodies written by Christopher Prosser. The individual pieces or 'movements' are called by their original titles:

1. Person of Ethnic Origin (Presto): this has not been performed before
2. Looking into the Distance (Lento): previously part of a violin duos collection
3. A Fond Memory (Allegretto): dedicated to Peter Prosser, Chris' father
4. Hilly Day (Andante): first performed by the New Klezeland orchestra at the 2012 NZ Festival of the Arts and recorded by Radio NZ
