Notes from score:

The Dream That Hath No Bottom was devised with and written for the pupils of Vernham Dean Gillim's School in Hampshire and commissioned with funds provided by the Millennium Festival Awards for All. It was written for performance by primary school children and the Vernham Dean Theatre Group following the childrens' studies for the curriculum.

Much of the music is intended to be accompanied by an orchestra of (amongst others) flutes, clarinets, recorders, violins and cellos with many passages designed for an ensemble of tuned (and untuned) percussion playing patterns by rote.
