Description:
The famous "Fugue in Eb" by J.S. Bach is here recorded on the virtual Salisbury Cathedral Hauptwerk pipe organ by Derek Burns. In English-speaking countries it has been popularly known as the "St Anne Fugue" due to the first subject's resemblance to a hymn tune of the same name by William Croft, a tune unlikely to have known by J.S. Bach. A fugue in three sections, each on a different subject, it has been called a triple fugue and commonly associated with the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). It has one of the grandest endings to any fugue and really is a great example of the pure genius of Johann Sebastian Bach.
