      In September 1938, at the height of the Munich Crisis, Percy Whitlock settled down to fulfil a commission to compose incidental music for a play, 'The Day-Dream Family', written by Madge Beaumont (1880-1969), author of masques and children's plays, such as Sunset Land (1915), The Gardener of Dreams (1922) and Narcissa. Staged in Bournemouth's Pavilion Theatre in February 1939, for the benefit of the local 'Waifs and Strays' Matinee, Whitlock's score amounted to some 40 minutes worth of songs and ballet numbers for what the local paper described as 'a charming fantasy'. It was set in the period 1848-1908 and featured a cast of 300 and Whitlock's wife, Edna, took the principal part of 'Sweetest One'. In Ballet of the Wood Creatures Whitlock beautifully captures the post-Mendelssohnian vein of Sullivan, German, Coates and Quilter, giving full rein to his melodic gift, though quite what the short quotation from The Hebrides Overture is doing here, no one knows!
      The organ can be omitted entirely or used to cover for any missing instruments.
      A PACK comprises one full score, string parts 4/4/3/4/2 and all wind, brass and percussion parts.
      Duration 4 minutes
