The sixth sonata, BWV 530, is the only one for which all three movements were specially composed for the collection.
When played on an organ, the second manual part is often played an octave lower on the keyboard with appropriate registration. Commentators have suggested that the collection might partly have been intended for private study to perfect organ technique, some pointing out that its compass allows it to be played on a pedal clavichord. The collection of sonatas is generally regarded as one of Bach's masterpieces for organ. The sonatas are also considered to be amongst his more difficult compositions for the instrument.

I chose not to do the repeat of the second part of the lento, as I thought it long enough already.
Repeating parts, also indicated ones, was left to the performer during the baroque period and second part repeats were often omitted.

During the practicing process I definitely developed a full blown love-hate relationship with the two sonatas I uploaded, solemny promising myself not to do this again.
We’ll see.....
