The Batrachomyomachia or Battle of the Frogs and Mice is a comic epic, or a parody of the Iliad, commonly attributed to Homer. Matthew provides music for this episode in the form of a special piece 'Batrachomyomachia'. The march of the percussion suggests the image of each side marching into battle. Minnie Rogers sings like a siren with the muse of Euterpe in this hauntingly beautiful dream-like piece. Inspired by the classic Hollywood films portraying the mythology of Ancient Greece.
