This work was commissioned by the Presbyterian Church of Paoli in Pennsylvania, USA., where it was first performed in 2000. It has since received performances in the UK. Douglas Coombes's music is both tuneful and rhythmically strong with episodes of quiet reflection as well as sheer dance-like joyfulness. The work is written in a single movement.
Originally scored for an accompaniment of brass quintet, timpani and keyboard, it is also effective with organ only.
