This incandescent movement was written on the composer’s recovery from illness and described by him as a Sacred song of thanks from a convalescent to the Godhead, in the Lydian mode. In a less elevated mood he also composed a brief four-part canon for the doctor on the ditty Doctor bars the door to Death. Of all his late quartets the A minor benefits the most from being heard on its own in a candle-lit late night concert.
