As the title suggests, this piece has a carnival atmosphere. It has a reggae feel and there are interesting changes in time signature which in turn creates an interesting melody. There are opportunities for easy improvisation in alto and tenor parts and the ending is a fade, which may be memorised for a visual stage effect.
