This paper will attempt to show that analysis of Bariller's Le Martyre de Marsyas and Musgrave's Narcissus reveals both pieces as successful programmatic works that present engaging musical ideas as well as thoughtful interpretations of the original myths. The methodology will be predominately analytical. It will begin by analyzing each piece separately, and then continue the analysis by comparing and contrasting the two pieces to each other. It will conclude with a brief argument that these pieces should be performed more often, along with solutions to certain issues that may hinder performance. This research will aid performance by offering a new analysis and deeper perspective to both pieces. The scope will focus on Bariller's Le Martyre de Marsyas and Musgrave's Narcissus, though other versions of each myth (in visual art and literature) may be taken into account in order to aid the analysis of the two musical pieces at hand.
