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.
