    Titled The Ones Who Helped to Set the Sun, it is written in the old-fashioned style of bravura fantasy, where a slow section – which commonly contains nothing of the theme that is to come – is followed by a cadenza. A theme and variations follows with a pseudo-orchestral ritornelli and concludes with a grand coda.

    The Ones Who Helped to Set the Sun is dedicated to Paul Watkins and all who helped through his final days.
