Opens with Manual I flourishes over organ points in the Pedal. The next section labeled Allegro is a short transition of a chromatic bent which leads
to a fughetta on a repeated note theme, played on Manual II. Then follows a rolling 3/2 section for three voices on Manual I and Pedal. Finally a
2-measure passacaglia theme enters in the Pedal, modulates a few times, and ends with a statement in Bb that shifts smoothly to a Phrygian cadence in
the original key.
