Product Description

•••••
Bedtime Stories (beyond the window) by P. Brent Register is a 6-movement work for soprano voice, flute, oboe, cello, and piano. Total duration approximately 23 minutes.

The text, adapted by Pam Chillemi-Yeager, is based on childrens' fairy tales/fables. Short excerpts from each movement include:

  • The Pea Speaks
    Beneath the moon, so lush and full
    A fevered yearning lay.
    A prince alone, a palace grand
    Seeking his heart's mate.
    A princess bride to rule with him,
    welcome arms at battles end.
    Tender heart and face so sweet,
    a bride, a mate and friend

  • Thumblina
    Maternal longing
    spun with magic
    Tiniest cherub, empty arms filled
    Petal-wrapped slumber
    Sun-drenched days
    Cherished child, see how she grows
    No bigger than a thumb

  • The Spider and the Fly
    Please come into my parlor, said the spider to the fly
    Pretty teasing words tumbling from the sky

  • Rumpy (Rumpelstiltskin)
    Straw to gold the story told
    An impish fiend and a trembling maiden
    Spinning riches, spinning glory

  • The Well Speaks (Frau Holle)
    Ancient stones covered with lichen
    cool sweet water fills my walls

  • Little Suck-a-Thumb (Burlesque)
    A mother's love has many faces
    Like a rainbow or a peacock's feathers
    Textures and tastes, sweet and bitter
    Teaching. Guiding. Loving care.
