Serenade for the Doll, No 3 from Children’s Corner ‘Serenade for the Doll’ would have been a more natural heading, but Debussy titled Children’s Corner and its movements in English that was never fluent: perhaps a gesture of gratitude for the work of ’Miss Gibbs’, the English governess of his daughter Chou-Chou to whom the suite is dedicated.
