Composed for the wedding of his sister Sarah to Samuel Fulton Beatty on May 4, 1940, in Barber's New York apartment. The two-minute piece makes a great prelude to any concert both as a novelty and as a well-crafted composition with some beautiful soaring melodies and intricate counterpoint. Late Intermediate Level.
