This piece was written for, and premiered at, the National Convention in Hamilton in 1953. Gerald Bales was the soloist, with Gordon Jeffery conducting. The review in the Diapason describes it as the highlight of the programme. The title implies that several movements were intended. Apparently only one was completed, but it is about 10 minutes long, and stands well on its own. The orchestra includes flute and oboe, as well as a full compliment of strings. All instruments have significant and idiomatic parts. The organ is used mainly as a member of the orchestra, with few actual solos, although it does stand out in several passages, especially in the arpeggiated passages increasing in velocity toward the fortissimo ending. The beginning is also loud, but there are contrasting sections in the middle, with some specific registrations indicated for the organ, as well as crescendos and diminuendos.
