which also adds 16th-note frills, while the left hand supplies a steady
"walking bass" in 8th notes. HC obviously was fond of this music:
he chose the piece as the one fairly recent one to include with much
earlier ones in the 1960 collection (see entry for 12 Aug 1960); he also
used it as the main theme of movement 3 of his 1954 harpsichord
quartet (no. 802), which in turn became the final movement of his
1962 harp quartet (no. 802a).
