These three musical presentations of stories were written to illustrate thoughts about the many ways in which music helps, and hinders, storytelling. The three short settings use a variety of vocal styles. The first story is spoken throughout; the second includes Sprechstimme
(i.e. melodically heightened speech) and operatic declamation; the final piece is entirely sung. The scoring is for soprano, clarinet, viola and, in the third movement only, harp.
