You might wonder why I have listed so many #3’s in the areas above. This piece is not difficult unless you get lost. If that happens, it’s all over. With so many contrapuntal lines going on, you would have a very difficult time getting back in again. With that said, I think that this is a beautiful study in counterpoint.
