Polythematic imitative fantasia. One of the very few Narváez works with no writing a4. Particular features: long sequential passages. Repetition of section III as VI.
Otherwise quite regular: imitative opening; free extensions; paired imitation; networks; sequences; repeated Coda section; on-going character.

The work was reprinted in:
• Phalèse, Des chansons reduictz en Tablature, fol. b4 (Brown 1546-18, nº 6)
