Three movements depict the struggle of 'the traveller' - a man caught between heaven and hell. Enticed by a chorus of demons and entranced by a chorus of angels, he moves through purgatory to supplication and finally paradise.
"Do not cast me away on that day. Just Judge of vengeance, grant me the gift of pardon before the day of reckoning."
