The idea behind it had, however, taken root some considerable time earlier, when a rather flippant work based on the same tune had been played in Winchester Cathedral during my time as a lay clerk there. When I had commented unguardedly upon it, the performer's cheerful response had been to challenge me to do better. Years later, the resolutely diatonic foursquareness of the Adeste, Fideles tune presented considerably greater challenges than I expected! The Improvisation presents various motivic fragments of the Adeste, Fideles melody while disguising them through rhythmic alteration, as at the very start, where the first four notes of the tune are imitatively declaimed as catalyst for a broad introduction longer stretches are obliquely apparent too, but much altered harmonically and tonally. When the piece gets fully underway as a sort of toccata based on jig-like rhythms, the tune's opening remains embedded within the flow of continuous semiquavers.
