A slow, solemn chorale opens in b-flat minor, which contains all of the material for the piece. The second statement with a countermelody played by first trumpet and trombone. A flute cadenza brings the opening to a close, and an Allegro is followed with fragments from the opening theme. The slow chorale is brought back one last time; the tune is then played Allegro Vivo, with the original countermelody played by Smith’s own instrument – the French horn. A piece easily playable for concert and contest.
