The next composition in manuscript Am.B. 340 (after the Fantasia in G, published last week) is again an anonymous composition and I do not know on which original it might be based. The composition consists of two parts with each it’s own motif, though the two motifs are closely linked. Throughout the work both motifs are presented in a lot of variations. The first part starts in a minor and works towards C major. The second part works it’s way back from C major towards a minor. It is a lively work, with lots of fast paced runs of sixteenth notes. Most of these runs are variations of the basic motifs of the composition, giving it great unity.

The recording was done with the sample set of the Silbermann organ of the Stadtkirche Zöblitz by Prospectum.
