Playing the eleventh fugue of Lohet one wonders wether Bach knew the fugues of Lohet. The theme of the fugue BWV 878 is the same as the theme of Undecima Fuga. And Bach uses some of the same stretto constructions Lohet used in his fugue. Of course, Lohet’s fugue is not nearly as elaborate as BWV 878, yet I think we can only admire the man who wrote this somewhere before 1600.

The recording was done with the sampleset, made by Organ Art Media, of the Arp Schnitger organ in Steinkirchen.
