J S Bach Eight Short Preludes and Fugues BWV 553-560 formerly ascribed to Johann Sebastian Bach (Organ)

Although it has not been possible to identify the composer of the “Eight Little Preludes and Fugues” Alfred Dürr writes in his preface to this edition “Since the value of a musical work is in no way dependent pm whether the composer is known or not, the hope remains that the delightful and appealing music of the Eight will find enthusiasts in the future despite the fact that they no longer fulfil their former task, namely to introduce ‘typically Bachian’ elements to the future organists.  The Eight definitely have their own value”.
