This work, by lacking an obligatory pedal part, is entirely playable on a one manual pipe organ without pedals, an electronic keyboard with pipe organ samples, a reed organ (harmonium), or even a piano.  While it would make for effective recital and lesson material a place can be easily found for it in the worship service where it could serve as a postlude.  This is another 4 voice piece inspired by familiar models of the same name left to us by the old English masters and makes use of fugal procedure.  It consists of a slow, brief introduction ending on a half cadence followed by a short fugue having a rhythmic subject and 2 countersubjects which undergo rapid development with almost no episodic material.  The subject of the fugal section derives from rhythmic transformation of the tenor line from the G Major Op. 8 Diapason Movement.  It begins on scale degree 1 and is provided with a real answer in the dominant.  A passage where the subject is combined with 3 free counterpoints appears in the middle of this section, both countersubjects return to combine with the subject in triple counterpoint for the final entry, and a short coda ending in 6 voices rounds out the piece.  This work is specially fashioned in historical style without constant 8th note motion and is particularly well suited for the conclusion of a worship service where the organist needs a short postlude to begin quietly and end rhythmically with a big sound when it isn't necessary to play a long time.  In this work the stretch for the hands is kept at an octave or less.  Registrations suggestions along with indications for hand division are included with the score.  Length:  48 measures.   Duration:  2:38.  Composer Bio page:
