 The vicar really isn’t wicked, he’s just immoderate.  Here are four little vignettes of his day.  The first movement, “Making His Rounds,” is a reel featuring a peppy minor tune that winds from light to dark and light again, as the vicar makes his way.  The second movement finds the vicar “Flirting on the High Street,” as a love interest approaches, passes, and disappears around the corner, resulting in a brief flight of fancy.  “Past the Tippling Point”, the third movement, is a queasy tango that starts very slowly, then accelerates throughout to a frenetic climax before ending with a shaky bass finish. Finally, “The Feast Begins” brings a glorious and energetic end to the day.
