This work has a folksong-like quality, as intended by Mackey, with a nostalgic throwback to Percy Grainger. Although the two primary melodies in the piece may seem recognizable to some, in reality the tunes themselves are original. Indistinct chords with diatonic extensions, near cadences and chromatic dissonance all meld through phrases that begin and end atop one another, creating a sense of motion throughout. Introductory opening chords eventually return, bringing the work to its end (program notes excerpted from those of Jack Wallace, graduate student at Kansas University).
