groups as its general contrapuntal texture.
middle movement is a lyric line over an accompaniment, with its tiny nod to
Handel's middle movement theme within.
contrapuntal last movement takes Handel's third movement theme as fugue
subject, which is then blended lightly with other themes found earlier in
pages, circa 8' 15" - an MP3 demo is here:
