These four movements for trumpet and organ are arranged in a slow–fast–slow–fast order. They may be played in a group or separately. “Quiet Time” has a gently rhythmic motion and a calm, expressive trumpet part. “Happy Time” is full of rhythmic bounce and exuberance. “Simple Time” is based on the Shaker tune Simple Gifts, but is slow and contemplative, rather than lively. “Closing Time” is bold and syncopated, with a touch of rag. All the pieces are intended to be in the middle range of difficulty for the instruments, and are for enjoyment in either a concert or church setting. The organ part can easily be adapted to piano.
