A few years ago I published music composed by Georg Wilhelm Saxer (see here: That music was taken from manuscript Becker II.2.51, owned by the Stadtbibliothek Leipzig. Besides the music of Saxer that manuscript contains, amongst others, 13 fantasias by an unknown composer. As far as I could find they are not published yet.

According to an annotation in the manuscript they were written in the first half of 1646. They are ordered in the manuscript to the church modes and they are all written in a three part texture. The music is not very complicated, yet well written and pleasant sounding. Some are mono-thematic, others contain several sections with different themes and sometimes these themes are combined as well. In the coming weeks I'll publish all thirteen of them. And I decided to make a 'Principal parade' out of it: I'll play all 13 of them with just one Principle 8' as registration and use a different sample set for each of them.

The first Fantasia is written in the first church mode, with G as the tonal centre. It is based on one theme, though about half way in the composition the theme het a rythmic variation: the first half goes twice as fast and the second half is syncopated.
