Dating from 1927, the work is based on music from 18th-century and represents an attempt to transcribe birdsong into musical notation.

The work is in five movements:
    "Prelude" (based on music of Bernardo Pasquini)
    "La colomba" ("The dove"; based on music of Jacques de Gallot)
    "La gallina" ("The hen"; based on music of Jean-Philippe Rameau)
    "L’usignuolo" ("The nightingale"; based on the folksong 'Engels Nachtegaeltje' transcribed by Jacob van Eyck)
    "Il cucù" ("The cuckoo"; based on music of Pasquini)
