Duration: 6 mins ca.

A review in the June 2016 edition of Organist's Review calls this piece a "beautifully produced work" that features "the pleasing disorientation of false relations" and is "as inventive as it is impressive."



A similarly glowing review in the August-October edtion of The Organ magazine calls this piece "a very impressive short work indeed; brilliantly imagines and written for the instrument...one can only urge this music on all recital organists - it is a splendid piece, and would surely make a counterpart to an original McCabe organ work in the same programme - the Johannes-Partita, especially."
