Beach enjoyed being close to nature and working in parks and woodland. Her contrapuntal craft, interwoven with wide pitch and dynamic range, offers an ever-expanding idyllic soundscape. Her approach to the A-B-A form of the work was unique, in which the B section is marked not by the introduction of new material but, instead, a change of key (G to E-flat) and contrasting dynamics. The use of the lower pitch range of the clarinet and the oboe at the beginning of the piece brings out richer and rustic tones, underscored by the horn and the bassoon with their low and warm sustained notes. The heart of the work lies in the middle of the B section of the A-B-A form, as the music surges from sweet tranquillity to melancholy-tinged sonority at forte across all instruments.
