George Friderik Handel uses a repetitive pattern in this piece of music. He repeats idea A
more than Idea B. Idea A is a captivating and easy going piece. Idea B lends closure to
Idea A. Once the closure is gotten, he then repeats Idea A a number of times so as to get the happy mood restored again and thus maintain continuity.

He uses different instruments to play the same tune. The tones of these instruments vary. Some are played softly while others are louder. In the first Idea A, he uses a couple of instruments in a rather soft tone followed by a single instrument which is also played in a soft soothing tone. Then Idea B follows and is produced by a couple of instruments whose tone is also rather soft. This soft tone is carried on until 1 minute 59 seconds into the piece when Idea A is played louder and with more number of instruments. This is followed by a louder Idea B until the piece builds up to a crescendo when the last part of Idea A is produced by many more instruments and is also played at a higher decibel. The piece ends many octaves higher than the previous endings. This change in tone and the degree of volume lends his music variety.
