The Vivace (RH Hauptwerk Rohr-Flöthe 8' + Octava 4' + Mixtuur 4f.; LH Oberwerk Gedeckt 8' + Rohr-Flöthe 4' + Nasat 3' + Gemshorn 2'
+ Sufflet 1'; Pedal Sub-Bass 16' + Octav-Bass 8') starts with the two hands playing parallel thirds, followed by a scintillating dialogue, and coming
together in thirds again to modulate to a different key. In the Largo (RH HW Principal 8' + Rohr-Flöthe 8'; LH OW Gedackt 8' +
Rohr-Flöthe 4'; Pedal Octav-Bass 8' with overall Tremulant), long held notes in one hand intertwine with an expressive lyrical motive,
underpinned by a prodding bass line. The Allegro (RH HW Principal 8' + Octava 4' + Qvinta 3' + Mixtuur 4f.; LH OW Gedeckt 8' +
Rohr-Flöthe 4' + Nasat 3' + Gemshorn 2' + Terzia + Sufflet 1' + Qvinta 1-1/2'; Pedal Sub-Bass 16' + Octav-Bass 8') has two main themes, the first
bold and forthright, the second angular, almost brash, which provide contrasting sections but are not used together.
