Autumn and winter. These periods motivate the human to summarize, to revise his convictions and gathered experience. Nature at this time facilitates immersion in thoughts about those aspects of life that do not lie on the surface, but paint the background daily. In the beginning, there's gloomy autumnal mood: cold, moisture and the leaden sky.

Those familiar with such later efforts as "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters" and "The Rain Falls and rhe Sky Shudders" can find their partial roots here, though the compositions are generally more formal and less-immediately noteworthy than what came next.
