The first of these was written for Douglas Lilburn's 60th birthday in 1975. This version is somewhat revised, Dream was literally a dreamed tune; I dream music only very occasionally and usually find it's quite impossible in the light of the day. However, this one, in spite of Grieg overtones, seemed worth rescanning. Chase needs no explanation.

Contents note
