The Choral Fantasy varies from the Choral Prelude in that it is much freer in form and style. This number opens with a variation of the fanfare that has been traditionally inserted as an introduction and interlude between stanzas.

The second section is in a faster tempo, and is based on statements of the opening motive of the hymn presented in fugal style.Estimated delivery 3-5 days
