A grand prelude with wonderful rhythmic drive, with marvelous interludes on Full Swell organ, ending with some fine chromatic writing at the end. The
fugue subject is a walking pattern which wends through many keys, with the aid of a counter subject, relieved by arpeggiated episodes. The walking
slows near the end: the destination as been reached.
