English. Victor C. Johnson.
A dancing opening motive in Latin, harmonized in sturdy open fifths and punctuated by handclaps, yields to a slower, contrasting English language section. A gradual crescendo and brief accelerando builds the energy back up to a triumphant return of the opening material. Strong dynamic contrasts and ample rhythmic interest offer a thoroughly satisfying musical experience.
