Ravel said that his intention, in composing the Mother Goose ' Suite, was to ' conjure up the poetry of childhood.' It was originally written in 1908 as a piano duet for the en.tertainmen.t of the two children of an intimate friend, the inspiration coming from illustrations in one of their books of fairy stories, by Perrault and others. Four years later Rave! orchestrated the Suite for a ballet, the scenario of which he wrote himself, basing it on the story of the Sleeping Beauty.
Roland-Manuel, in his book on the composer, describes it as ' an exquisite triumph ' and says: ' Because of its character of happiness, render emotion, and refined poetry, it is a work whose charm and popularity are the result of a supreme simplicity.' (Incidentally, the pagod,as of Laideronetle, or Little Ugly, are not Chinese temples but little creatures who sing and play upon queer instruments fashioned from almond husks.)

Appeal on behalf of Spurgeon's Homes, by the Rev. .F Townley Lord, D.D.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
It is eighty-five years since Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the great Victorian preacher and philanthropist, founded these Homes for orphaned children at Stockwell. The work of caring for needy children has continued, and there are now nearly 250 in residence, coming from all over the country. More than six thousand girls and boys have been given a home and education under Christian influence to prepare them for their future lives. The most helpless and deserving secure the benefits of the Homes, which are undenominational. They are maintained chiefly by voluntary contributions.
