After the choral prelude, it now the turn for the fugue by the mysterious H.W> Tauscher. It's a five voice fugue, on the thene "B-A-C-H". The fugue treats several possibilities of this famous theme: rectus, different forms of stretto, inversion and diminution (last pedal statement of the theme). Whoever Tauscher was, he knew his counterpoint.
I am actually a bit proud of this recording. It's the first five voice fugue I've ever pulled off. Of course, it's not the most difficult one in existance, but it was quite a Tour de Force for me.
