Pictures Of Childhood, consisting of four melodic pieces inspired by the infant children of friends of the composer, is in an uncomplicatedly melodic style being evocative of the innocence of childhood, and is very pleasing to perform and to listen to. 'Lullaby for Laura' did its job when, on hearing it for the first time, Laura fell asleep in her mother's arms. 'Tallulah's Tune' is based on the rhythm of her names. 'Poppy's Waltz' was inspired by a neighbours little blonde girl in her garden, and 'Keris Mae' was introduced to the composer in a playground, hence the playful nature of her piece.
