Great rollicking fun, utilizing cross rhythms, hemiola, etc, that British composers loved. Fairly challenging organ part, particularly keeping rhythm steady. Quite a bit of divisi, and some vocal maturity is demanded to sustain the lines. Range is moderately extended in all parts and sometimes remains in higher tessitura. One of this distinguished composer’s best pieces.
