The fourth fugue of Simon Lohet offers a few surprises. At least to me. Firstly, parallel fifths and parallel octaves apparently weren’t as ‘forbidden’ in Lohet’s days as they became in later years. In this fugue there are some blatant examples of them, as well as in later fugues. And secondly, Lohet writes in this fugue some unexpected dissonances. They make this fugue sound far more modern than I thought instrumental music from around 1600 sounded.
