This is another piece in the spirit of late Romantic French organ toccatas. The Toccata No. 2 features a looser, more improvisatory form, and more extreme chromatic harmonies. It also features writing more in the spirit of its historical models than of J.S. Bach. But it shares with Toccata No. 1 a lively, and relentless drive, and is filled with exuberance and hope, concluding in unmitigated joy.
