Hearshen's ingenious treatments of Sousa themes in symphonic form continues with the third movement, based on Fairest of the Fair. Presented as a light, scherzo-like movement, there is quick interplay between many voices, key changes, and fresh rhythmic figures. It is pure delight to play this separately or as part of the magnum opus that is the entire Symphony on Themes of John Philip Sousa.
