The first movement is titled “La plainte d'Agar” and is in 3/4 time, very fluid and expressive. The movement becomes progressively more animated and expressive as the tempo speeds up. It then returns to the original tempo and style. The second movement “Benediction de l'Alliance” is a very jubilant and fast moving, clipping along at 176. Very frequent time changes propel the player to the end of this piece.
