“Quick and Fantastic” are the directions given to this piece, which summons forth images of goblins and “faeries” wheeling and cavorting about. Ideally suited for a small group of singers, its unison designation makes us think of a treble group, but it works well for a mixed madrigal group as well. There are some close three part harmonies in the last measures which sound even more interesting when doubled. Although the piano accompaniment is easy, a pianist with a light, facile ability is necessary.
