WELL known as a song, whose wistful melody is admirably wedded to the plaintive words, this forms also the last piece in the second Suite made from the music to Ibsen's ' Peer Gynt. At the end of his wanderings Peer Gynt comes home, to find the sweetheart of his youth still faithful to him, and in her lap the weary head of the traveller at last finds rest. Then she sings to him of her constancy and her belief that he would return.

ELGAR'S interest in young people appears in quite a number of his compositions. This Suite might bo 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. In the second movement, two delicate themes are heard together, one on the clarinet and one on the strings.
