Dedicated to Roger Sessions; Already apparent in this youthful work is Helps' obsession with long, taut melodic lines. Although there would be no “String Quartet no. 2” to follow the promise of the original enumerated title, Helps composed a gorgeous Nocturne for the same historically-weighted ensemble of two violins, viola, and ‘cello  in 1960.
