38. Ernest Tomlinson: Little Serenade
This sweet, delicate piece is one of the light music composer's most popular. It was composed in 1955 as incidental music for a radio play, 'The Story of Cinderella', accompanying the moment where Prince Charming meets Cinderella and is struck by her beauty and charm. Tomlinson subsequently turned into an independent, and well-loved, concert item.
