Prelude and Fugue in F major
Valleys of diatonic thirds span across an octave, over a supportive
tonality. The six note parallel chords answer, and yield to a chorale-like
texture until the reprise. Falling diatonic sevenths and following parallel
melodic sevenths make up a small bridge before the last reprise.
fugue features the falling seventh after a lyrical turn, with succeeding
appearances of the subject in the expected regions. Parallel triads provide
a harmonic counterpoint to the subject, and the fugue ends quietly.
