This toccata draws inspiration from the many written by Johann Pachelbel. The A section dances around the melody of the hymn tune "Lambillotte" commonly known as "Come, Holy Ghost." The transition to B uses the pedal point technique commonly used by Pachelbel, as well as motifs that overlap and transfer from voice to voice. The transition leads to a section in the dominant minor which leads to a restatement of the main melody. After a lighter section in the dominant minor, the main theme is restated in bold chords, followed by a flashy ending. This piece is great for those who are pianist turned organists as the pedal part is easy to learn, and was written to be used on the Feast of Pentecost.
