The Fugues on the Magnificat for Organ or Keyboard
By (author) Johann Pachelbel
Fugues on the Magnificat for Organ or Keyboard by Johann Pachelbel
Book DescriptionAmong the finest, most performed and most studied of Pachelbel's works are the ninety-five short, preludial fugues on the Magnificat. Written during Pachelbel's final appointment as organist of St. Sebald, Nuremberg (his native city), they constitute a magnificent culmination to a prolific career. Collected in one convenient volume, these are among the most expressive pieces ever composed for organ and keyboard; Pachebel's masterful understanding of harmony and counterpoint blend perfectly with a pure and constant spirit of reverence.
