Of the eight numbers forming Elgar's Nursery Suite ' No. 1 ' Aubade ' (Awake) is structurally the most important, for it is the longest and most highly developed. The first section flows with a gentle lilt and in the second section there is a quotation from a hymn tune ' Hear thy children, gentle Jesus ' that was written by the composer in his youth. No. 2 ' The Serious Doll' is as economically written and as spare of notes as the music of the modern French school at its best. The chief melody, wistful yet tinged with humour, is given to the flute and is supported by a delicate string accompaniment. No. 3 ' Busy-ness ' is a brilliant piece of orchestral virtuosity and the title fits the music Perfectly. No. 4 ' The Sad Doll ' has the character of a slow waltz and contains some lovely string writing. It is perhaps the most original of all the numbers.
No. 5 The Wagon Passes' is imbued with the phantasy and mystery associated with the nursery tale told at dusk. No. 6 ' The Merry Doll' moves along at a rapid pace and the sudden accentuations and sprightly melodic leaps suggest the activities of Punch. For sonority and poetic feeling No. 7 ' Dreaming ' takes first Place in the suite. Richly scored for muted strings it expresses a mood of sadness and regret. This leads without a break into No. 8 ' Envoy ' which, however, is not being played on this occasion. It opens with an elaborate cadenza for solo violin. No fresh material is introduced, but instead both soloist and orchestra comment upon what has gone before, finally rounding off the whole work with a longish reference to the first number.
