This piece begins very softly as distant drums and bells are heard from the temple. As the listener approaches nearer the temple the music grows louder. The repeated notes 3 flat and A give the impression of the chanting of the priests and the scale passage in the bass clef represents the slow procession of footsteps. The piece ends softly as the distant bells are heard.
