The work was inspired after a painting of the same title by Jules Breton which is on display at the Art Institute of Chicago. The French ruralist work portrays a woman working in a field who is pleasantly charmed away from her work by the song of a lark which is seen in the distance. The simple, yet sincere, mood of the painting is one of its most unique qualities and is the primary emphasis of the musical material for the work. 
     In establishing this mood, the work integrates the performance of natural sounds, such as wind and bird calls, with more traditional musical sounds, while also emphasizing many of the percussive, lyrical and “bird-like” capabilities of the instruments. The work consists of three contrasting movements. – Charles Young
