Kittel’s sixth and last fugue is the most ambitious of the six. It has all the usual trickery of a fugue: inversion, dimunition, augmentation, and stretto. The only thing missing is the backwards motion of the theme. Though it’s of course possible that it’s there and I have not found it yet…

The recording was done with the sampleset of the Onderhorst Kabinetorgel in Bennekom. I did not use the extension, so it could be played like this on the real organ.

Kittel, Fuga a 3 Voce, F Dur
