When it was introduced in , the piece was an immediate hit and various instrumental versions of it were made, including one of the lyrical third movement, for cello and piano, by the composer himself. The first movement of the suite, Introduction -- Choral, is somber: the stately main theme is played on the manuals, with drones underpinning it from the pedals. The mood, both in the slow pacing and austere chords, is almost funereal, but there is also a majestic character to the music, as if the darkness is leavened by the sense of glory from the swell of bigness and magnificence filling the air. The ensuing movement, Menuet Gothique, has a celebratory character, offering contrast to the serious mood from the previous panel. The music is playful in its graceful dance tune, too, imparting a sense of joy and cheer. The mood never varies from its sense of peace and tranquility, even when the dynamics rise a bit in the middle section.
