The Prelude begins with a Pedal cadenza, continues with manual arpeggios, and pits a strongly ornamented soprano line against emphatic chords, with an
almost seamless segue to the Fugue, whose subject incorporates the first 5 notes of the familiar "St. Anne" hymn tune, though its first entrance is
disguised with ornamentation. Subsequent entrances are more straightforward, especially in the Pedal. Output volume -6dB. Temperament: Werckmeister 3.
Impulse reverberation added.
