 C The top of the first page testifies to HC's struggle to hit upon exactly
the title he wanted. Crossed out in favor of Exultation are (not in
chronological order): Celtic Dance of Merriment, Contradanza, Im-
pulse Counterrhythmique, Impulse Joyous, Exhilaration, Joy Rhyth-
mus. In his explanatory notes, written or oral (as on Folkways
FM-3349), HC described this piece as an "Irish walking tune" that
alternates emphasis between right foot and left foot, thus (so he says)
not wearing out one foot alone "as in regular marching." See no. 698.
