Programme Note

Dream-Songs is a short cycle of settings of Walter De La Mare, suitable for solo voice but ideal also for children's voices to sing in unison. Bennett's atmospheric music provides an imaginative foil to de la Mare's wonderful poems and a stimulating work for classroom study or concert performance.
