This work was written to celebrate the opening of the studio of Palmerston North artist, Annabel Neall. The French Overture seemed appropriate for an artist and the inclusion of the hymn is recognition of the Nealls' further interests. As a French Overture it features the usual slow introduction featuring the dotted rhythm, followed by a more lively contrapuntal allegro.
Introduction features a dotted rhythmic figure. The Fugal Allegro includes two appearances of the hymn tune "Stuttgart".
