ELGAR'S interest in young people appears in quite a number of his compositions. This
Suite might be described as a Fantasy on a quotation from Charles Lamb , from the reverie which Lamb calls by the same name—' Dream Children.' The first dreamy tune is played very softly by the two clarinets in thirds ; it is largely used throughout the first movement. In the second movement, two delicate themes are heard together, one on the clarinet and one on the strings, and the whole little movement is woven of the slightest and daintiest texture. It closes, and brings the little Suite to an end, with a reminder of the wistful tune of the opening.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
