I have always enjoyed the music of Trevor Duncan. Duncan could rise to an almost impressionistic height with his St Boniface Down. His deeply romantic The Girl from Corsica is one of the loveliest musical portraits in the genre.
Children in the Park was composed in 1954 and features the composer writing innocent music with the backward glance from man for whom these activities are but a pleasant but ever present memory. However there is nothing innocent or childish about the quality of the music.
