The fourth and final piece in my Children Suite was inspired by a day trip to Brighton some years ago when my children were let loose on the pier for the afternoon and had the time of their lives. Alice, aged about seven then, entered a talent contest and sang Daisy Bell, which took some courage in front of a large audience, and so Harry Dacre's familiar tune finds its way into this piece, hopefully sounding as if played on a rickety old hurdy gurdy or similar fairground instrument. At the end, to no one's surprise I imagine, Mr Dacre's tune and mine turn out to share the same harmonies. Alice didn't win the contest, but I always maintained that if her nerve had held out and she had sung her second party piece (Your Baby Has Gone Down The Plughole) it might have been a different story.
