Composer: Lohet, Simon
Sample Producer: Prospectum
Sample Set: G. Silbermann Stadtkirche Zöblitz, 1742
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Medieval and Renaissance
Description:
Lohet’s Quinta Fuga (I follow the designation in the original Edition, instead of naming it Fuga Quinta) shows its Renaissance roots more than the previous four. It uses frequent repeated chords, a device we nowadays don’t associate with the contrapuntal style of a fugue. And it uses (again) frequent parallel fifths and octaves. These are either a characteristic for the instrumental music of the period, or Lohet was (in this respect) a very bad composer. Interesting (and for me unexpected) is also the e flat in the bass voice in bar 43 against the d in the alto voice. Perhaps an error in voice leading by Lohet, but it sure results in a colourfull harmony.

For comparison: Carson Cooman uploaded this piece as well, in a manualiter performance: http://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/12043
