||Wikipedia article on the play|
- According to the Elgar Society, this is "Incidental music to the play by Violet Pearn, based on the play A Prisoner in Fairyland by Algernon Blackwood, comprising orchestral entr'actes and songs for soprano and baritone soloists". Therefore, it is a little unclear whether Elgar took the words to the songs from Pearn's text or Blackwood's.
