Mark Kanny of the "Pittsburgh Tribune-Review" remarked that the piece "takes a noted Medieval English celebration as an excuse for party music." He continued, "The jaunty main theme — very simple and repeated a lot — is offset by contrasting ideas, one of which includes a bass guitar part." Gabriel
of "The Oberlin Review" was more critical, however, writing, "The piece featured uninteresting melodies that were not executed with the virtuosity expected of Conservatory students, but with the virtuosity of a practical joke—a joke completely missed by the audience."
In 1982, disenchanted by what seemed like 'type-casting' in the work he was getting, McRae sought training and artistic growth in the Music Department at USC. There, he met and worked with Dr. Robert S. Moore, in composition, and with William
, in guitar, for a brief period. (Dr. Moore also inspired McRae to take an interest in martial arts training, albeit from a pacifistic, meditative standpoint.)

In 2009, Lentini's suite for solo guitar entitled "The Four Seasons" was published by Mel Bay.
