John Malveaux of MusicUNTOLD.com writes:

„On July 6, 1949 Florence B. Price composed a short and brilliant piece for piano solo titled Whim Wham. The title refers to a caprice or something gotten or bought on a whim, and the earliest autograph suggests that Price may have considered it a complement to the serenity of her recently published and recorded jewel Placid Lake“.
