Among 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.
