If you have time read this first before listening:

1705 October, the young 20 year old Bach sets out from the city of Arnstadt to make the journey on foot to Lübeck, almost 400 km. To hear some music by an organist – a 68-year-old organist, Buxtehudet. Bach got permission to leave his post for a month. He had much to learn.
He forgot to return on time. It was well into February by the time he was back at his post in Arnstadt, meaning that he had stretched his leave of absence by almost four months. When he returned home, the church authorities let him know it. A fascinating transcript survives of the "minutes" of a meeting to which Bach was called to explain himself.
Bach transported a number of manuscripts that he had made of Buxtehude’s music. The older composer died just a year later, and it is probably partly thanks to Bach that his music was preserved and disseminated.
I think it is possible that Bach listened to this piece Toccata and fugue in F Major, by Buxtehude. And that he copied it. And thanks to Bach, we have it.
I don’t know how Buxtehude/Bach played it and on yt is many different versions.
Here is my version of it, (with some mistakes, sorry) Toccata and fugue in F Major by Buxtehude, the Master from which Bach learned so much.

I hope you appreciate the historical information
