Josef Seger (born Josef Ferdinand Norbert Segert, last name also Seeger or Seegr) (21 March 1716 – 22 April 1782) was a Bohemian organist, composer, and educator. After graduating in philosophy from the Charles University in Prague and studying music under Bohuslav Matej Cernohorský, Jan Zach, and others, Seger became organist of two churches in Prague and remained there until his death.

An extremely prolific composer, Seger became one of the most important representatives of the Czech organ school of the 18th century. He was also an influential teacher: his pupils included Jan Antonín Koželuh and Josef Myslivecek, and his figured bass exercises served many generations of teachers.

"Fugue in D major" is marked "Moderato. Volles werk.", so we hear the "full organ" including the 8' reeds of both the Positiv and the Hauptwerk, as well as the 16' reed in the Pedal. For the last pedal entry, the Hauptwerk is coupled to the Pedal.

The listening perspective is about "mid-building," and the score is attached below.

I will be reviewing this sample set for "The Barde" in January.

Happy New Year to All! :-)
