Los Cuatros Amigos Musicos de Belen is a classical European story brought to the New World and preserved by the early Spanish colonists in New Mexico. A tired old donkey, an aged dog, an old cat, and a sad old rooster who can't help but crow at odd times in the day band together after their masters throw them out, and form a musical quartet. They decide to sing for their supper at a house owned by thieves, and mayhem pursues. The story is classically set in Bremen, but Belen, New Mexico is a fine location as well.
