Anthony Ritchie writes that this piece Childhood...

"reflects on different stages in life, and makes connections between our own childhood and that of our children, and indeed our grandchildren.

Observing and relating to children is like a renewal of hope and wonder that counterbalances the experiences and tribulations of adult life. Therefore, the style of the music is deliberately naïve and simple, while also containing undercurrents of complexity."
