The Mouse, the Bird & the Sausage : from 'Four Songs from Grimm's', for SATB choir and piano / music by Luke Byrne ; lyrics adapted by Luke Byrne from Grimms' fairy tales.
Library shelf no. 782.5542/BYR 3 [Available for loan]
I became acquainted with Grimms' tales through reading The Singing Bones by the peerless Australian author and artist Shaun Tan. In his book, Shaun Tan does not simply illustrate or re-tell these rough, gruesome and enthralling stories, but creates a single clay sculpture for each story he chose, accompanied by a short excerpt of text. Together these capture an essence of each story.
"The Mouse, the Bird & the Sausage" can be
told like a synopsis without losing its wit and high moral
Instrumentation: SATB choir, piano.
