A Little Sleep was written for Tom McGrath, in 2009. It is a programmatic piece that evokes a bedtime scene. A child listens to a music box while she prepares for sleep. Her parents sings her a lullaby - the slower section - and she drifts off, but her sleep is disturbed by a nightmare, represented by the furious final section.
