The vocal line maintains a simple duple time signature over the compound duple meter in the piano accompaniment.
As a Scottish folk dance in duple time, the reel stands in stark contrast to the triple time hornpipe, a 'uniquely English dance' that 'centred in Derbyshire, Lancashire, and Nottingham'.
He originally wrote the last note of the phrase before the change of time-signature as a minire, then, using a cross through each stem, he changed it to a semibreve; if the music was to continue in duple time here, this note would, indeed, have been a minim; moreover, it is clear from the cramped spacing in each part that no room was left after the bar-line for the new time-signature of 3.

Although Franck does not employ some of the more dramatic harmonic devices evident in the music of Gabrieli and Schutz, he does animate his settings with frequent word painting; one particularly effective example involves Franck's mixture of cross relations, suspensions, and sequences with a shift from triple to duple time to create a musical affect of drunkenness for the text "Esset, meine Lieben, und trinket, meine Freunde, und werdet trunken!" ("Eat, my loves, and drink, my friends, and become intoxicated") in "Mein Freund komme" (no.
