a) The slow moving cantabile (song-like) movement could relate to the
"sweetness" of Jesus' presence.
b) The forte (loud) sections could depict the "Fountain of Light" that exceeds every joy and need.

expressive purposes only and not to be brusque or flashy. The composer
accomplishes this with the following words: memory, Jesus and joys.
