Little Music 3 represents the trend of chamber music for strings, in this case uniformly-sounding violas. As in the majority of Górecki's works written over that decade (end of the 1950s to the end of 1960s), the phenomenon of intended indefiniteness appeared in the composition, indicated in the first place by the scordatura, i.e. a virtuoso device achieved by a mistuning of the strings. Another and no less essential element of this lack of definiteness in Little Music 3 is the deeply-hidden source of the melodic line using a well-known Polish church hymn.
