This two CD re-release of Goossen's piano works performed by Antony Gray shows the composer at his child-like best. This charming set of works draws heavy influences from Goossen's childhood and shows his melodic gifts to their full benefit. This naive attachment to childhood is represented splendidly in these collections of miniatures, and are a rare public display of a very private individual.

"The intrepid Antony Gray plays throughout with acumen and verve, relishing the impressionism and the folk dance equally. A first class guide. Self-recommending for admirers of British piano music." - MusicWeb International.

11Prelude
12Curtain rises: Entrance of Miss Jones to school room, where she angrily notes the absence of Amelia, and departs.
13Entrance of Amelia, and Dance
14Re-entry of Miss Jones who admonishes Amelia angrily. Classroom scene.
15Students dance a quadrille.
16Entrance of the Reverend Joseph Hopwell: he timidly hands Miss Jones a bouquet and inspects the classroom.
17Amelia dashes off to fetch tea. Scene with the curate.
18The curate gives an invitation to a garden party at the vicarage.
19Miss Jones accepts joyfully. Angry scene with Amelia in which she is handed a dunce's cap and put in the corner. The other students prepare for the party.
20Everyone departs for the party while Amelia is left behind playing a march on the spinet. The door closes.
21Amelia dashes the dunce's cap from her head and rushes to the window to watch her friends departing. She finally resolves to be good, returns to her seat and falls asleep.
22The dream sequence, in which Amelia becomes the ballerina of her dreams.
23Miss Jones appears searching for the curate: she sees and pursues him, finally catching his cloak, which remains in her hands while he rushes off. Mortified, she disappears.
24Amelia is thrilled by the return of the curate, and she flirts with him.
25He finally gives in and they dance joyfully together.
26They stop suddenly on perceiving Miss Jones' return..
27The other pupils enter, dancing. Amelia relates her dream. Miss Jones and the curate return. Miss Jones, who has been putting her bouquet in a vase, turns to see Amelia teasing the curate. Miss Jones faints at the sight!The pupils rush to her aid and revive her.
28Amelia forces the curate to his knees beside Miss Jones.
29Finale. Miss Jones promptly recovers and everyone dances merrily. Amelia gives Miss Jones and the curate her blessing. General gaiety.
