The first movement, Morning Fantasy, is an eloquent fantasy beginning and ending with a quasi-improvisatory setting for the central hymn tune "The Morning Trumpet." The second movement, Reeling Chester, begins with an introductory fragment and then a complete statement of "Chester" in the cello, clothed in a polyphonic texture in the piano and evoking the energy and drive of the early New England style. The counterpoint then becomes the subject of a vintage Harbach fugue that weaves "Chester" into its fabric along with another fugue, reels and more hymns.
