Manuscript Mus. Ms. 30377, owned by the Staatsbibliothek Berlin, contains four Prelude & Fugues by Johann Schneider. In the manuscript they are called just ‘Praeludium’, but since the fugue-part of the pieces is very prominent, I decided to include it in the title. The Präludium in g moll is the third one. The fugus has a somewhat unorthodox structure, in that the fugue starts with subject and countersubject at the same time.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Bader-organ in the Walburgiskerk in Zutphen by Sonus Paradisi for Hauptwerk.
